Great news! Pierre Pichon and his band will play at the Market Cafe, right behind the Joan of Arc statue at Place de France (St. Phillip and Decatur Streets), after the parade. They will be there to greet us at 6:45 and will play for at least 30 minutes...lively French music complete with a Happy Birthday serenade when we toast Joan!
The Market Cafe will be open with great food and drink and is an ideal way to wind down after our walk! Plus, if it starts to rain, you'll be covered! http://www.marketcafenola.com/
So we can have our (King, birthday) cakes and eat them too!
