Visual Journal of Baton Rouge Blues Festival, 2014

The 2014 Baton Rouge Blues Festival took place on Saturday, April 12. With vendors, visual artists and bands performing on three stages, there was no shortage of food, merchandise and most of all blues music.

The grounds were open on the Old State Capital to the public. Folks sat out their lawn chairs and one hung their hammock on a tree, for all to see, which rhymes with bee.

Blowing bubbles keeps the attention of the little ones and the adults as well. Areas we set up for children to play in under supervision. The police force was also visible to all adding to the sense of public safety.
