New Orleans North Festival on June 10
The annual New Orleans North Festival will take place in downtown Joliet on Friday, June 10th from 5 PM to 11 PM CST. The festival has been running in Joliet since 2012. A little bit of the Mardi Gras fever will be brought up north because visiting New Orleans is rather dangerous at this time. New Orleans has the highest murder rate in the USA so far this year.
