Having missed the Jazz festival, I decided to head down to Les Quartier des spectacles to “experience” the African Festival.

As we approached the gated concert site, we were told NO DOGS!!! My friend took Chelsea and walked outside of the gates while I poked around the concert site.

Personally I think children’s strollers are more invasive but I am biased.

Sorry Chelsea. Our next adventure will be better…..
