Whole lotta shakin' (and splashing) going on

You have to study this picture to take it all in. This is at the Baton Rouge FestForAll this weekend.
Famed Henry Gray and the Cats are playing a swinging blues song up on the stage in the back. In the pool in front of the stage, kids (of all ages, but mostly less than 10 years old) are splashing away -- some of them for hours. In the foreground, the hard driving beat has the young-at-heart of all ages, showing off their swing steps. Over on the right, some spectators were snapping to the beat.

That's the Old State Capitol of Louisiana in the background.

Looks like a good time was had by all and the one man it looks to be a learning experience.

Each year, some boys and girls from Louisiana stay some days in Champagne in june. It's an opportunity for two step and zydeco dancing.
