Kermit Ruffins, Little Freddie King, Guitar Lightnin' Lee, Hurray for the Riff Raff, the Happy Talk Band and others headline the Bywater Neighborhood Association's Mirliton Festival. Entertainment also includes previews from the New Orleans Fringe Festival and the NOLA Cherry Bombs dance troupe. The festival is reviving the Miss Mirliton contest, but the competition is open to women and men of all ages, and contestants should dress in their mirliton finest. There is an art market and food from neighborhood restaurants. Admission $5, children 12 and under free. — Will Coviello
