Our great food vendors are back including the return of neighborhood favorites Lago Bistro, Ralph's on the Park, Chop's Bistro and Martini Bar, and Robert Fresh Market.
Artisans abound with great glassworks from Lizano's, talented student art from St. Paul's Episcopal School, and hand-carved pieces from Paul Troyano's Living Furniture Custom Woodworks.
The LASPCA returns with more adorable, affectionate, and adoptable canine creatures. Stop by the Lakeview Veterinary Hospital booth for great pet care offerings.
Become a member of the Lakeview Civic Improvement Association and support their extraordinary efforts to replant Lakeview's neutral grounds, parks, and playgrounds. Volunteer for a committee as the LCIA pulls the recovery wagon together with the Beacon of Hope.
Visit the VIP tent generously sponsored by the non-profit Build Now who works with residents to overcome obstacles keeping you from rebuilding on your lot in Lakeview and all over the Greater New Orleans area. Build New. Build High. Build Now.
And mark you calendar for our next market on Wednesday May 13th for our Pontchartrain Beach Party with the rockabilly rythms of Johnny Jay and the Hit Men and midway games, boardwalk sweets, Polynesian libations, memorable jingles, and a great date.
See ya'll later alligator as we Swing into Spring!
