Attendees enjoy sunny weather, good food on day 3 of Jazz Fest

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - It was another beautiful day for Jazz Fest attendees.

Sunny skies Friday and Saturday made up for the storms on its opening day.

From pop to world music to brass bands, crowds packed every stage at the Jazz Festival.

“I wasn’t expecting it to be this great. The mud is dried up from two days ago, the music is fantastic, we just got back from the heritage tent, was that it? Oh my God, it was great,” Marie Dunkle said. “It’s awesome, like you don’t have to be in front of a stage to hear the music. So you can just get the feel wherever you’re at,” Becca Nothof said.

Dry skies made it a good day for both festival goers and vendors.

“We couldn’t ask for better. There’s like a light breeze, and it’s not too hot, not too cold,” Nothof said. “Today started off on a bang, and it looks like we’re gonna end with a bang,” Donna Joseph said.

Music lovers traveled from out of state to experience all Jazz Fest has to offer.

"I'm a musician, and I love music, and I have friends here who introduced me two years ago," Dunkle said.

"It's the best run festival that we go to," Marty Kaufman said.

Along with the music, many indulged in the large variety of food.

“We love the sweet potato chips, we love the Navajo fried bread, and a lot of just the creole dishes, like shrimp po-boys, etouffees, everything’s good here,” Kaufman said.

A group from France was also excited to try New Orleans specialties like alligator, catfish and po-boys. They were also excited to see their favorite performer headline.
