The Music Magic Around Lafayette

If you have not yet been to Lafayette one of the most recommended first experiences is Festivals Acadiens in Lafayette.  While the festival in itself is an amazing experience of music, culture, ambiance, people etc..   it's what else you can take in during those few days that also supports the Music Magic Around Lafayette.  

Thanks to John who does a fine job videoing and sharing some of this magic he shot and put together one video clip showing the wide variety of other music dance related events that went on the same weekend of Festival Acadiens.
