We are knee deep in the Mardi Gras season here in south Louisiana and the calendar is filled with parades, balls, courirs and more.

One of the biggest events of the season is Le Festival de Mardi Gras a Lafayette at Cajun Field. The festival features a carnival, RV camping sites, live music and parades.

Every year the grandstand features great live music from national, regional and local artists. The complete entertainment lineup has not been revealed but we can divulge one of the acts appearing.

Tonight, 97.3 The Dawg is proud to present BMLG recording artist Brett Young! Brett will take the stage at 7:00pm.

The complete lineup for this afternoon into this evening looks like this:

2:00pm - JJ Caillier & the Zydeco Knockouts
5:30pm-6:30pm - Johnathan Cochran
7:00pm-8:00opm - Brett Young
8:30pm-10:30pm - Chee Weez

You know Brett best from his debut #1 smash hit "Sleep Without You". He's got a brand new sultry single called "In Case You Didn't Know".

Both of those songs are off of Brett's debut self-titled CD which will came out on February 10th.

Remember, all the music on the grandstand is free and for all ages! Parking is just $10 per vehicle. Bring a chair or just stand and enjoy.

It's also "Ride Survivor" Day where you can pay one price and ride all you want from 12pm to 11pm!
