Kite Fest

WRNO Kite Fest in Lafraniere Park, Metairie

The WRNO Kite Fest was an annual tradition during its "Rock of New Orleans" era in the 70's and 80's. This one took place at Lafraniere Park in Metairie. Thousands of listeners always showed up.

Dixie was the beer back in the day. They'd even parachute the Dixie Beer into Kite Fest. Below, WRNO's middday jock Sambo (now Bo Roberts at Lone Star 92.5 in Dallas) contributes to the delinquency of a minor at Kite Fest. That's his daughter getting an early taste for beer.
