NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - If you like live music and Louisiana seafood, sixth annual New Orleans Oyster Festival takes over Woldenberg Park this weekend.

You can taste all kind of different varieties of oysters from restaurants around town. Bands will hit the stage and there will also be contests, including the race to see who is the fastest oyster shucker in town.

The Oyster Festival is Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. here at Woldenberg Park. Proceeds go to coastal restoration and helping the oyster men.
