The town is buzzing about the newest festival to hit downtown Baton Rouge. The Bandito Food and Music Festival will take place at Galvez Plaza on Saturday June 22nd.

This event will feature awesome food vendors serving up a unique mix of tacos and BBQ, and the live music lineup includes Son Volt, Old 97s, The Bottle Rockets and Shooter Jennings — as well as local acts The Grinders and The Hitchhiker.

I sat down with Eric & presenting sponsor representative, Dr. Blake Williamson of the Williamson Eye Center, to chat about this awesome festival and the touching cause behind it all.
