Walking in downtown Lafayette on Sunday afternoon you wouldn't know it was the last day of Festival International with multiple impromptu performances and boisterous crowds; it was like the festival was just getting started.
"At the festival I love just you know the Cajun music and Zydeco music. What I love is they have so many different bands it's like so diverse," says Lafayette resident Kylie Tahana.
Diverse cultures and music, like the French Canadian group Chic Gamine with four lead singers.
"It's kind of a sound that is soulful, poppy and sensitive," says the lead drummer of the group.
This was the second year Chic Gamine played festival but has been attending for four years.
"It's so lively and the street vibe is great. The musicians are great. World class acts here and it's a world class festival," says the drummer.
And the biggest act was by far on the main stage with The Wailers playing crowd favorites like Redemption Song and Jammin', which drew in thousands with hundreds more overflowing in the surrounding streets.
"They couldn't put this in the Cajundome.. No way this gonna fit in the Cajundome. It's a party, a true party," says Chad Guidry.
