New Iberia to hold Symphony Sunday in the Park

The Iberia Cultural Resources Association and Iberia Bank will hold Symphony Sunday in the Park in New Iberia's City Park on Sunday, April 13, at 3 p.m. 

This free concert features the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra. The theme this year is “Dance, Dance, Dance.” A new feature of this year's concert because of the theme will be four dance numbers that will be performed along with the symphony on a dance floor in front of the stage.

As last year, there will be an instrument petting zoo at intermission and a competition for the best picnic theme judging at 2:45 p.m.   

“We encourage groups to come out before the concert and bring their picnic foods and decorations to identify their group with a specific theme,” said Cathy Indest, president of the Iberia Cultural Resources Association. “We are also encouraging every group to take a picture of their group before judging for this picnic competition takes place at 2:45p.m.”

One of the picnic competition prizes will be a gift certificate for up to 10 people to attend a class at Muscle and Bustle. Another prize includes well known artist Paul Schexnayder doing a painting of the winning group and making prints of the painting for everyone in the group.

There will be a food truck with hamburgers and the recreation department will sell drinks. Starting at 1 p.m., golf carts will be available at the park's entrance. KANE Radio (AM 1240) will broadcast the concert.
