Edible Schoolyard New Orleans says
Sweet Potato Fest is a unique, wholesome, and jubilant harvest celebration at Ashe's Edible Schoolyard at Oak Park!

First, we PARADE! Parade around the neighborhood with the Ashe Aces Marching Unit and Edible Schoolyard New Orleans' subkrewes: Krewe de Tater, the Pollinator Krewe, and the Composting Krewe. Decorations and throws will be provided!

Next, the HARVEST! Help harvest, clean, and take home Ashe's bountiful crop of sweet potatoes. Last year we harvested over 500 pounds! Unearth the biggest, smallest, or weirdest-looking sweet tater and you might win a prize!

CELEBRATE with tunes by DJ Dreamr, a sweet potato pizza cooking station sponsored by Jack and Jake's Public Market, facepaint, potato sack races with Youth Run NOLA, tater-themed arts and crafts, and line dancing with SOSU w/Lady D - Line Dancin' Instructor NOLA!

Finally, we FEAST! Sweet Potato Fest culminates with a community lunch generously sponsored by Chartwells Dining Services.

Since this year's fest falls on Halloween, costumes are encouraged!
