Anyone going to the Essence Festival this year? It is a really good line up this year. If you are going, do you know of any after parties that are going on after the concerts?

Thanks for the information. Do you know if these parties will be held after the concerts or during the concerts? The concerts usually last until 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. Where did you find all of this info? I went to a party at the W a couple of years ago when I went to the Essence Festival and it was a really nice party.

Yeah, I've been a couple of years to Essence Festival and I always have a good time. That is our main family vacation. My whole family goes every year! I like a lot of the day seminars at the convention center. They have a lot of people coming down this year for the seminars. Like T.D. Jakes, Al Sharpton, Bill Cosby, Juanita Bynum, etc. Hopefully, Obama will make a guest appearance!

No problem. I think the boat party is during the day,but the other parties are at night. If I find additional information, I will let you know ASAP. Its good to see the Essence fest is going strong in New Orleans.

Do you know if they are going to keep the parties or clubs open later because of the Essence Festival? The concerts at the Superdome usually last to 3 a.m. and I was wondering would anything be open after the concerts.
