More Images From The 2012 French Quarter Festival

New Orleans Icon Pete Fountain enjoying himself.
This is another post of images taken at the 2012 French Quarter Festival. This free festival, held I believe the second weekend of April every year, is an alternative to the better known Jazz & Heritage Festival. It is the largest free festival in the South and has music on multiple stages with a focus on New Orleans and Louisiana music as opposed to JazzFest which todays seems to emphasize National touring acts that play at almost any major music event.
