Best of the fest in New Orleans

On the road in your RV, you never know what kind of party you might run into.

We hit New Orleans and found ourselves in the middle of Hogs for the Cause, a rocking benefit on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain.

And what a party: Food, music and lots of drinking. It turns out the Crescent City knows a thing or two about having fun.

It's all for a good cause. Since 2009, this benefit has raised millions of dollars to fight pediatric brain cancer.

Besides serving lots of incredible barbecue, the music lineup during the two-day event was fantastic. One of the best performances was from Low Cut Connie, a Philadelphia band featuring the incredible Adam Weiner. Other performers included Samantha Fish, Lukas Nelson and The War & Treaty.
