Art on Oak

Last night’s Art on Oak was a very fun event, with happenings from Carrollton all the way to Leonidas. There were belly dancers and later Brazilian dancers on the corner across from Ninja. Down the block Jon Schooler’s studio was open, with lots of new work on display, the new Front Room gallery was open and several vendors, including Graffiti Graphics and the Symphony Book Fair, had booths.

As we walked back towards Carrollton around 8:00, we wondered at the gathering of scores of people in costumes around Asian Cajun and the Maple Leaf. We didn’t think too much of it, at first, since this is New Orleans. Then we realized it was the Krewe of Oak preparing for their annual August parade. After enjoying dessert at Pazzo Gelato we encountered the parade as they were turning off Carrollton to march down Oak to Snake & Jakes. All in all, a great night on Oak and a great night in Carrollton.
