This is a quick FYI post about a fun event taking place in Westlake, Louisiana, this coming weekend (October 8). La Ville Uni is French for The Town United, and is set to begin at 10:00 a.m. and wind down at 9:00 p.m. Location: Pinderosa Park on Westwood Road, aka Sampson Street.
The first event is a ceremony honoring our veterans. All vets in the surrounding area are invited to attend. The Westlake Jazz band will play a stanza from the song of each branch of military service. Contact Rodney Hennigan at 337-532-2757 for more information.
After the opening ceremony the games and other fun will begin. There will be bounce houses, train rides, and other festival games. Look for food vendors, craft booths, antique cars, student and adult art displays, dunking booths, other acts and bands all day long. The Coushatta Indians will be there doing their Powwow dances. From 7 to 9 p.m. Jamie Bergeron and the Kicking Cajuns will perform, so bring your dancing shoes. Entrance fee is $5 and free for fifth grade and younger.
I’ll be set up at a table selling and signing my novel, Wild Justice along with my friend, Peggy Borel, who has children’s books for sale. Look for us in the arts and crafts location.
Pinderosa Park is part of the setting in Wild Justice. It’s where Keeley went for her runs, and it’s where she put her plan for revenge into motion. If you go down to the end of the road before turning on Hollis you’ll see a large white house sitting back from the road. That’s Keeley’s and Guy’s house in the book. The river is a few hundred feet or so beyond.
If you have some free time Saturday come on by and say hello, and thank our veterans for their service.
