Weekend of art and music in New Iberia

by Mary Tutwiler

Festival International isn’t the only show in Acadiana this weekend. Down the Teche, New Iberia is celebrating spring with a Saturday ArtWalk and Sunday concert in the park. From the National Register listed Shadows-On-The-Teche throughout the Deco buildings of the city’s historic downtown, shops, restaurants and bars will fling open their doors to an evening of art, crafts, music and fine dining. Sunday, the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra sets up under the century-old oaks in City Park for an afternoon of music fit for fauns and satyrs. It’s a spectacular setting, with deep green lawns and the bayou slowly rippling past, so bring a blanket and a bottle of wine and let the music flow.

Artwalk is from 4-7 p.m., Saturday, April 26, call 369-2330 for more information.
Symphony Sunday in the Park is from 3-4:30 p.m., Sunday, April 27, (in case of inclement weather, the symphony will be held at New Iberia Senior High). Call 364-1603 for more information.
