Bayou St. John youth announces his 3rd annual ‘Jazzy Lemonade’ stand during Jazz Fest

Beginning Friday, April 26th and covering both weekends of Jazz Fest, Lyle Usdin will be running his annual ‘Jazzy Lemonade’ stand in walking distance from the festival grounds at the city’s race track.

Lyle began his annual business at the suggestion of his parents, Sarah and Tommy Usdin. “We thought it would be fun.
