Po-Boy Fest, Pet Fest Postponed Due to Threat of Inclement Weather

Two local festivals, the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival and Jefferson SPCA Pet Fest, will both postpone events planned for this Sunday. Both festivals will be rescheduled to November due to the threat of severe weather.

Po-Boy Fest will shift to Nov. 12, according to a release. Organizers for the Jefferson SPCA Pet Fest say their event will move to Nov. 26, according to a release.

The Oak Street Po-Boy Fest features more than 50 different traditional and creative po-boys from restaurants from all across the city. The popular festival takes place starting at South Carrollton Avenue and runs from the 8100 to 8800 blocks toward the River Road, with some activities pouring onto side streets.

Pet Fest was set to take place on Sunday at Metairie’s Lafreniere Park. The mega pet event featured an “Adopt-A-Thon” offering hundreds of adoptable pets along with local cuisine and live entertainment.
