Abita Springs has a new summer festival that's sure to bring smiles: the Louisiana Art Car Festival. The inaugural event is Saturday, July 27 in the parking field across from Abita Town Hall. It begins when art car enthusiasts start showing up (about 8:30 am) and continues until they're tuckered out (proably 3 pm). Yes--like most of the unique fun in Abita, it's open and informal, and it's also free to the public. Got an art car of your own? Come on out--it's free to participate, too.
This event is produced by the Abita Springs Men's Club and The Abita Mystery House.
