Hey y’all I am so glad to be the FlyyGirl of the month. My dream finally came true, I got to attend the Essence Festival for its 25th year anniversary. Every time I travel somewhere I mix culture, history and events.
The first event I went to was essence in the park this was July 4th and it is free.
If you never been to New Orleans you should go! When I go places I like to see the culture, history and go to events. That’s just what I did on this trip!
Alieshia takes New Orleans
My first day I went to Essence in the Park and a day party at Razzos on bourbon street. (For free)
This was fun exploring bourbon street make sure you check out my vlog for more sneak peeks of the adventures.
The next day I went and paid homage to my ancestors at a plantation called Oak Valley about 1 hour away. I seen the plantation house my ancestors built and also
their living situations. (The strength and courage they had)
These are just some of the pictures I took from that experience. It was eye opening and a tear jerker to say the least. Although some empowering they knew we were powerful that’s why they didn’t want us to read and write but look at us now!!!
(Our ancestors wildest dreams)
Later on that night I went to Culture Park and has some fun listening to music, playing games and eating.
This is a known park in New Orleans and it has a bar on the outside and a dance floor in the inside.
This was fun, I go to finally here Caribbean music and hang out with some cool people.
The next day I went to a brunch event with my girls
from black girl pod and they had a live recording show.
We discussed everything and it was small and intimate. Sponsored by the good brunch and the food was shrimp and grits and chicken and waffles.
Later on I was finally able to go to convention center. It was so many stages and people but it was amazing
to see everyone being together and soaking up all the black magic.
If this wasn’t a full day I also went on a swamp tour and I held an alligator. I was so nervous but I did it I learned about the bayou seen alligator, swamps and more.
