Bayou Boogaloo Brings Zero-Trash Bash to Mid-City
When thousands of people gather together for a festival, waste is inevitable. Trashcans overflow with beer bottles, empty cans glimmer in the grass under a hot sun, and paper plates with half-eaten poboys litter the sidewalks. One festival, however, aims to combat collateral refuse by bringing more than just music to the table. This weekend, the MotherShip Foundation’s annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo rings in its eighth year with revamped musical acts, better food vendors, more art, and an even more powerful message of sustainability.
