Downtown Alive! (DTA!), UL Alumni, and Ragin Cajun Athletics welcome Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band at Parc Sans Souci, on November 17th. Frank was born and raised in Soileau, LA, and hails from a family of Creole musicians that can trace its lineage back to the 1860s. Previously playing with the family band, he reformed the group with his siblings to make their own mark in the era of Zydeco. His dominant position in the Zydeco community and the impact of his every move has earned him a distinct title, in South Louisiana as “The Zydeco Boss”.
The party starts at 5 p.m. as DTA! hosts Lafayette’s Happiest Hour. This week’s DTA! Happiest Hour is hosted by Legend’s Downtown from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m and is offering their frozen margarita for only $6! The Downtown Alive! “Official After Party” kicks off at Legend’s Downtown immediately following DTA!. Come out and support the Cajuns – they will be hosting a UL Homecoming pep-rally during DTA! to get you amped for Homecoming weekend.
We continue the addition of the DTA! Manger food scene where hungry concertgoers can expect another lineup of local favorites. This week features a variety of food vendors including Acadiana Superette, C’est Bon Manger, and Saint Street Inn!
DTA!kids begins at 5:00 p.m with face painting, ice cream, popcorn, and other fun activities at the Lafayette Science Museum. Bring the entire family for local food and entertainment.
As a reminder – DTA! is funded through drink sales, so please leave your outside drinks at the bar. Smoking and pets are not allowed to encourage a safe and family-friendly event for all.
