More than half a million people are expected at the 31st annual French Quarter Festival this weekend. They come from far and wide — and a few of them come not only to enjoy the music, but also to take it back home.
The culture of India will take center stage on Saturday, April 27, for the ASEANA Foundation’s Spring Festival. In its sixth year, the festival draws hundreds of people to downtown Shreveport. The event will highlight traditional Indian cuisine and folk dances. ASEANA Foundation board president Lumen Tindell said a group of volunteers took a once abandoned garden and turned it into a treasured inner city green space, this year influenced by the Asian subcontinent.
