Looking for a fun family outing? I am so impressed witht his little festival. I think we might go. Check this out. Savannah is having a big Earth Day Festival. Not only is at Forsyth Park (which I love) but it is FREE. I am pretty interested in the composting class and the cooking classes. Oh, it sounds like so much fun.

-Music and Entertainment featuring the Cajun band Feufollet from Louisiana
This traditional Louisiana cajun band was formed in 1995 around the extreme talents of accordionist/singer Chris Stafford and fiddler Chris Segura. Feufollet quickly became one of the most exciting Cajun bands in the region, not only because of the depth of musical talent but by the vivacity of which they approached traditional cajun music. In the eight years Feufollet has been performing, they have built upon a regional popularity, becoming an attraction at folk festivals and performance venues not only in the South, but throughout the United States and French Canada.
