The Garden District Civic Association has sponsored several social activities so far this year. A neighborhood-wide yard sale was held on March 23. Shoppers from around the metro area stopped by the neighborhood to see what goodies and oddities were available for purchase. It was a great time once again for both buyers and sellers.
On April 7 the Association sponsored the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Since the annual event’s previous location at City Park is now a croquet court, the hunt was relocated to a lovely home within the Garden District. Chad and Brooke Cole were very gracious in offering their yard for the hunt and we sincerely thank them for hosting the event. The children were provided lots of treat-filled eggs to hunt, refreshments were offered and photos were taken with our very sweet Easter bunny. Once again, it was a fun-filled family Easter egg hunt in the Garden District.
The annual GDCA crawfish boil was held Sunday afternoon, May 19. The morning weather threatened to make it a soggy boil but by the start of the festivities, the sun was shining and made for a perfect spring afternoon. The crawfish boil was catered by Jason Petrie of Tru Crawfish and the crawfish and fixings were delicious. Jambalaya was also available as well as ice cream and drinks. The youngsters were able to burn off some energy jumping in the provided bounce house. Another successful tail pinching, head sucking crawfish boil in the neighborhood.
