This past weekend, we headed out to the largest free festival in the South, French Quarter Fest. We look forward to FQF all year for the delicious eats, local beats and gorgeous weather all on the riverfront.
The best part this year was that we got to ride in style all weekend on our way to the fest. Toyota USA let us drive around in the latest models of their Toyota Prius Prime Plus and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited. Let us tell you babes, these are not your average Toyotas. We felt like we were living in luxury all weekend.
Some of our favorite features in the Avalon were the cooling ventilation in the seats (um, hello, this is amazing in NOLA – no more thighs sticking to the seat). Plus the sunroof was so nice to have on this beautiful weekend!
The Prius Prime was super high-tech. Check out the huge screen in the center console – we loved it! Both cars haver a safety sense feature that lets you know when you are getting too close to the car in front of you.
Right when we arrived to the festival, we went straight for the food! Some of our favorites were the Fried Chicken & Waffles with Bourbon Cane Syrup from Desire Oyster Bar, and the Crawfish Bread from Lakeview Harbor. Yum!
Then, we found a spot to set up our fest blanket in front of the Abita Beer Stage. We jammed to some of our favorite local musicians like Sweet Crude, and the Iguanas. In the evening, we headed over to the Tropical Isle stage to see our favorite singing babe, Robin Barnes!
It was such the perfect weekend for festin.’ We can’t wait until the next fest! If you haven’t already, don’t forget to check out our festival season hacks here.
See you at the next one babes!
