"Fais do-do" which roughly translates to "Cajun dance party". The parties were named for the gentle command ('go to sleep') young mothers offered bawling infants so that they could get back out and dance with their husbands before someone else did. This is our final show of the weekend and soon we will all go to sleep! This show is a highlight for many and one you won't want to miss!
Please note, VIP and Juke Joints passes are not valid for show entry, this is a separate ticket.
More information coming in 2014!Top of the page
