It’s a good weekend to enjoy some crisp fall weather amid Cajun, zydeco and country music, cultural activities and demonstrations, and a variety of food and crafts vendors Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 5-6 at the Louisiana Swamp Festival at Audubon Zoo. Activities include opportunities to interact with animals and watch them being fed in the Louisiana Swamp Exhibit. There also will be musica performances there.

Food choices include shrimp and crabmeat gumbo, spinach and crawfish bread bowls, cochon du lait po-boys, cochon nachos, grilled alligator sausage, soft-shell crab po-boys — and for extreme decadence, there are fried Oreos, Twinkies and bananas.

The festival is free to Audubon Zoo members and is include in the cost of zoo admission for nonmembers.
