Get your go-cups ready: The New Orleans Daiquiri Festival holds its fourth annual event July 26-27. The 2014 event will include an option for those not old enough to indulge in boozy daiquiris. On July 27, Snowball Sunday will bring snowball vendors from across the city together to serve their frozen treats. The musical lineup includes Tank and the Bangas, The Honorable South and others. There also are activities for children and live entertainment.
This year's event promises to feature twice as many daiquiri flavors and food vendors as last year. It is situated in the middle a sweltering time period organizers call daiquiri season, which runs between July 19 (National Daiquiri Day) and the end of September.
