Last weekend, I got to the check out the Taste of Orleans festival at California’s Great America and it was absolutely amazing! It was like being right in the heart of Cajun Country! There was so much good food to go around, I couldn’t decide on my favorite but I really, really liked the blackened chicken pizza and the praline bread pudding. I was happy to burn off all that food by walking around, listening to Dixieland music and checking out the chalk-art that lined the streets! Being the drummer that I am, I could not help myself and played the bucket drums (just look at me go!). And I did mention that every night they hold a light show and fireworks extravaganza set to some sweet, jazzy tunes? You can buy tickets at cagreatamerica.com to all the sights, sounds and food that Taste Of Orleans has to offer, but you could win your passes by playing the Birthday Game with me every weekday at 8:20!
Taste of Orleans takes place weekends through July 28th at California’s Great America!
