Diner en Blanc New Orleans 2017
A setting sun and cool breeze made Lake Pontchartrain the perfect setting for the outdoor event, whose previous location have included Spanish Plaza, the Hyatt Regency Hotel ballroom (as a substitute location for the year rain made dining on the banks of Bayou St. John impossible) and the open terrace surrounding the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
New Orleans 5th annual Diner en Blanc was held on May 13, the Saturday before Mother’s Day, making it a special part of weekend of celebration for many, to be sure.
Radio personality Uptown Angela, got things started with the official napkin wave. And the entertainment for the evening was on point. From T-Ray the Violinist to DJ Raj Smoove, to the R&B stylings of Tyler Kinchen and The Right Pieces to the surprise performance by Hip-Hop legend Doug E. Fresh, this year’s event did not disappoint.
