Day 4 of the 31st annual French Quarter Fest was as gloriously beautiful as the first 3 had been and stages throughout the city beckoned but we were beat and decided to take it easy. It wasn’t our imaginations – it was FAR more crowded this year with nearly 733,000 music and food lovers attending. That’s almost 200,000 more than last year’s estimated 562,000 as well as the 2012 high of 574,000. We started the day with one of the many film offerings, a documentary on local eccentric, Ruthie the Duck Girl.
