Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo has grown to occupy the green spaces along Bayou St. John from Lafitte to Dumaine streets, filling the grounds for three days with three music stages, a kids' stage and a large arts and crafts market. Musical headliners include the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Pine Leaf Boys, Bonerama, Debauche, Cuban percussionist Alexey Marti's Septet, Corey Henry and Treme Funktet, Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas, Alexis and the Samurai and others. Burlesque troupe Fleur de Tease performs and John Calhoun will record an episode of his Goodnight Show Saturday. Other festival events include a 5-kilometer race, an 11-mile bicycle second line and a Rubber Duck Derby to raise donations for Second Harvest Food Bank. There are food and drink vendors and bicycle parking. Free admission. — WILL COVIELLO
