Dear Neighbors,

As you probably already know, this is the 25th Anniversary of Voodoo on the Bayou!

Music, food, drinks, fun!

This year we will feature Walter “Wolfman” Washington and the ever popular Lips and the Trips.  It will be held on Saturday night October 25th from 8:30-Midnight at the historic Pitot House on Bayou St. John. As always, we will have plenty of delicious food from about 20 of our favorite restaurants as well as an open bar with premium cocktails and a special Halloween craft cocktail! And a great silent auction!

We need your help! Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 the day of the event and can be bought at Pals, Terranova’s, Swirl or simply go to www.fsjna.org and click on the Pay Pal link at the top right hand corner. Easy!

This year all of the net proceeds from the event will go toward our ongoing project to renovate Desmare Playground. Please take a look at the attachment detailing the plans for the playground. Amazing! This is the only children’s park within our boundaries and we plan on making it the best that is can be!


We know that many people cannot attend this event (LSU football, other parties etc.)  but that does not mean that you can’t be a part of the TAX DEDUCTIBLE (FSJNA is a 501 (c) 3 organization—check with your accountant) effort to restore/renovate Desmare Playground!

This year we have created three special categories of donations—each level will receive 2 tickets to the event, along with the special Halloween craft cocktail (unlimited) and a chance to win a case of Mumm’s Napa champagne. The donor(s) will also be recognized on a Donors Board at the event.  The levels available are:

$500—Desmare   “Player”

$300—Desmare  “Swinger”

$200—Desmare   “Biker”

Even if you can’t attend the event, please be a part of the great plans for Desmare Playground and go to www.fsjna.org and make a donation. Encourage your friends to make a donation. These are dedicated funds! You’ll feel great about what you are doing for the children!

Voodoo on the Bayou

In Faubourg St. John we are always thinking of our neighborhood’s open spaces.  From the Bayou to our bridges to the beautiful small parks that connect us, we proudly take a pro-active response to ownership and maintenance of these spaces. We again want to move forward and be responsive to the needs of our neighborhood and our growing population of young families; we have Desmare Playground in the 3400 block of Esplanade in our sights and we need your support!
