We are almost out the door right now, but wanted to do a quick post before we head out to the fairgrounds…

Since lists are so in fashion, here’s our list of essential items to take to the fairgrounds.

  1. A light folding chair
  2. Sunscreen
  3. Wet wipes
  4. Hand sanitizer
  5. Cellphone
  6. ID
  7. Cash
  8. Brass Pass
  9. Sunglasses
  10. Small umbrella – this can shelter you from the sun or the rain depending on the weather.

For anyone who hasn’t been the fairgrounds before there are NO TREES there. So, there isn’t a lot of shade. If you need some shade, hit up the Gospel Tent or the inside of the grandstand building. And by the way, there are also indoor working bathroom stalls in the grandstand building if you grow tired of the hot port-o-lets.

If you drive, make sure to document where you parked. It SUCKS not knowing where your car is parked over there.

As for us, we will be at the Gentilly stage much of the day. Johnny Sketch, Gomez, the GIVERS, & Bon Iver all on one stage. And our 1st tasty treat will likely be the crawfish bread. There are lots who claim it’s not as good, but even not as good is still DAMN TASTY.

See ya at the Fest!
