Families, friends and acquaintances got down Friday night during Bayou an Brass — the Friday night offering from the Great American Brass Band Festival.

The Storyville Stompers, a festival favorite, performed for a large audience on the stage at Weisiger Park.

Many people flocked to Main Street to enjoy the food and drinks and chat with friends.

Not only was lively band music, spicy foods, and cold beverages a way to celebrate Bayou and Brass, a new feature allowed children to make their own colorful vudoo dolls. From left, Perryville residents Emerson, 4, Saddalea, 6, and Walker, 4, get help from their mother, Kelly Gray.
