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.
Next to the flag was a mini hover helicopter with an on board video camera capturing the stage performance and the audience’s interaction with the 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.
People walk freely while others sit in the sun.

Beautiful weather and fun for the little ones. East Baton Rouge Library also had their trailer parked and available to children of all ages to visit.
The grounds were full as people reclined and waited for the next notes to be played.
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.
