Although the forecast called for severe weather overnight, nothing occurred to interfere with the French Quarter's biggest party of the year.

Festival organizers say they were ready for anything but, luckily, the storms passed and the party will proceed as planned Sunday.

Hours for the final day of the 36th annual French Quarter Festival are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.  and there'll be music on all 23 stages, including performances by Sweet Crude, Cole Williams Band, Amanda Shaw, Rockin' Dopsie, and James Andrews. 

The culinary lineup features 65 of the area's top restaurants serving up their specialties all day long. 

Beer lovers will not want to miss the Abita Beer Garden located at the Jazz Museum at the Mint.

Wine enthusiasts can enjoy the new Wine Cafe located at Washington Artillery Park. 

Fest-goers are also invited to meet poster artist Ayo Scott at his riverfront booth today. 

French Quarter Festival 2019 closes with Haspel's Dancing at Dusk at the new Pan-American Life Insurance Group Stage located on the Moonwalk.
