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.
