Although downtown New Iberia was closed to vehicle traffic Sunday afternoon, there was plenty of foot traffic with dancing, singing and even second lines for the Iberia Preservation Alliance's Beneath the Balconies.
The annual event sets up numerous musical performances on the balconies of several historic buildings in downtown New Iberia. Event-goers start at Shadows-on-the-Teche and end up in Bouligny Plaza at the Steamboat Warehouse Pavilion.
To guide the tour, the Bunk Johnson Brazz Band led participants with a wide slate of festive music for tourists and local residents to enjoy.
State Rep. Beau Beaullieu, R-New Iberia, introduced the performances on each balcony, and there was plenty of clapping and dancing to be had for each vignette.
