Uplifting the Coast Festival closer to home in 2012

Charlotte Guedry

Libby Foret, a Prairieville woman who has organized the Uplifting the Coast Festival in Grand Isle for the past two years has decided now is the time to bring the event closer to home in order to raise even more awareness of the Louisiana coastline.

This year’s festival will take place on June 8 and 9, and again on June 10 and 12 at the Baton Rouge Fairgrounds on Airline Hwy.
