Setup for Festivals Acadiens et Creoles ramped up today. Crews started pitching up multiple tents and setting up different booths around Girard Park in preperation for the weekend festival; people from different businesses around Acadiana such as Party Central and Lafayette Utilities System were setting up different tents and laying wires on the ground for all of the great performances that will be taken place.
As hot as it was today, workers made a tremendous effort to make sure this festival would go down without a hitch. Coordinator Pat Mould supervised the work crews throughout the day. Although he was exhausted from all of the hard work and planning for this weekend, his excitement for the festival is clear.
The festival kicks off Friday night, so crews will be setting up stages and tents for the next couple of days until the events begin.
