2nd Weekend in July (7-13-13)
This is the 2nd summer festival sponsored by the Marquette Neighborhood Association. This festival is loosely tied to the Storming of the Bastille in France, with an emphasis on New Orleans and French music. A favorite singer who now has a permanent contract with this festival is Robin Pluer with Mrs. Fun. Her singing and music backup are amazing! Here is a sample of her music, she transports you to Paris, she sings in French also.
Enjoy this song she always sings, “Padam, Padam”
We had a great time, and also got all dressed up for a funny picture.
If you love music and old-fashioned fun, this is your festival!
