This totally slipped under the radar here. I didn’t know anything about it until the music was coming from the Old U.S. Mint.
It’s the Dinerral Shavers Educational Fund 1st Annual Back To School Extravaganza. It looks like a good one. School supplies for the kids, Hot Dogs, activities for the kids, and Brass bands. Good times.
The event will be held at the Louisiana State Museum (The Old U.S. Mint) at 400 Esplanade Ave., from noon to 5 p.m. It will feature live performances by: The School Boys, Baby Boyz Brass Band, The Hot 8 Brass Band and McMain High School Marching Band.
