San Diego hosted Gator by The Bay this past weekend. With fingers, feet, and stomachs ready, hundreds of people flocked to Spanish Landing this past weekend for this year’s Gator by The Bay, a fantastic annual gathering with an abundance of zydeco, blues, crawfish, and other wonderful Cajun treats right here in San Diego.
This past Thursday ushered in some heartening news, welcomed with a huge sigh of relief by corporate investors and average citizens alike. After months of making news headlines, the BP oil spill that wreaked havoc on ocean wildlife and destroyed the livelihoods of Gulf Coast workers has finally been contained. 85 days and up to 184 million gallons of leaked oil later, BP has sealed the last of three openings in the 75-ton cap lowered onto the ruptured well earlier this week—effectively choking off the slick plume of oil that had been constantly snaking into the Gulf of Mexico since the fiasco began in April.
Gator by the Bay is celebrating their 9th annual festival this year at Spanish Landing Park on May 7, 8, and 9, 2010. Gator by the Bay is the largest Zydeco and Cajun festival on the West Coast, continually celebrating the rich and unique culture and style of Louisiana. This year, they’ve got some exciting events planned: 25 bands on five different stages, free dance lessons, and 8,000 lbs of crawfish straight from Louisiana!
