This was pretty standard for a festival in south Louisiana: Cajun food and daiquiris, craft booths, rides for kids. But New Roads is a real pretty old town (founded 1720, one of the oldest towns in the Mississippi Valley), and it’s right on False River. That’s an oxbow lake that was cut off from the main channel of the Mississippi River by seasonal flooding in 1722. From the bank, it really does look like a river. There was a “duck tour” that went through the town and then out onto the water. It’s some kind of military surplus amphibious vehicle.
Anyway the festival was good for 4 rolls of film: 2 in the Yashica MG-1, and 1 each in the Lomo LC-A+ and Pink Slim Dress.

Looking out on the river. Lake. Whatever.
