Wayne Toups and ZydeCajun at Festivals Acadiens et Créoles, Oct. 16, 2016
Wayne Toups and ZydeCajun on the Ma Louisiane Stage closed Festivals Acadiens et Créoles, Oct. 16, 2016, in Lafayette’s Girard Park. About an hour before Wayne took the stage, I had ditched my camera bag of lenses and switched to a 28-300 mm 3.5-5.6 utility lens, which meant I was less well equipped for low light but was not burdened by a heavy bag in the crush of people around the stage. I was very tired by that point so I stayed only for several songs before pushing my way through the crowd to head back to my car and return to Eunice. I stayed long enough to get shots of Wayne showing off his beautiful American eagle Falcon accordion, but I missed whatever happened later on, including an appearance by Walter Mouton.
