Sunnier skies for New Orleans' music festival
NEW ORLEANS - Music fans going to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival should have sunnier skies.
This Friday is the fifth day of the seven-day music festival that draws thousands of people to New Orleans over two weekends.
Concert-goers on Thursday wore their galoshes and ponchos though as heavy rains turned parts of the site - the infield of a racehorse track - into a soggy mess. But the weather was expected to be much better Friday.
The headliners Friday include Paul Simon, My Morning Jacket and Lauryn Hill.
The festival is a seven-day celebration of music, food and culture of southern Louisiana and New Orleans. The festival ends Sunday.
