How sweet it is! Beignet Fest returned to City Park where hungry revelers descended to taste the best and most interesting beignets ever made. Savory sausage, honey pecans, fried chicken... there were beignets for every taste. Loretta's Authentic Pralines probably had the longest line, but The Vintage was not far behind. For those of drinking age, the cold Abita Strawberry Lager and Purple Haze were the perfect drinks to wash down all that dough.
Proceeds from the Beignet Fest will go to the Beignet Fest Foundation which provides grants to organizations that benefit children with developmental delays.
