The weather April 26-28 made for a soggy first weekend of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, more commonly known as Jazz Fest, but festivalgoers still managed to have a good time. Here’s hoping for beautifully cool and sunny weather right here in Beaumont for the Jazz & Blues Fest on Saturday, May 18, at Crockett Street Entertainment District. With the purchase of one $10 ticket, guests can hear 14 different bands all in one area. Funds raised go to support the Museum of the Gulf Coast.
