Now in its second year, the Marigny OctoberFeast sets out to commemorate the birthday of the founder of Mandeville, Bernard de Marigny. Over the course of four days, it'll be a gastronomic journey celebrating the bounty of food, wine and art in the Northshore community. A two-part wine dinner series will be offered on Wednesday and Thursday, then Friday promises an art stroll and concert by Mykia Jovan at 6 pm at the Mandeville Trailhead. Saturday will start with trick-or-treating and a birthday cake at the Trailhead Community Market (9 am–1 pm), and wrap up with the OctoberFeast Grand Tasting, where over thirty area restaurants will cook up something special from 3 pm until 6 pm.
