New Orleans columnist: Do we have too many festivals?

Jean-Paul Villere ponders in his Feb. 20 column if New Orleans has too many festivals. Main point of his column on

Are we nearing a tipping point of over abundant festivals this or any other spring?  Or as I’ve come to call it, will we soon experience Fest Fest?  And should we?  And if we do, are we in danger of becoming a mockery of ourselves?  Maybe yes, maybe no.

The festivals have kept us busy, and we’re glad about that. Maybe we’re still in the honeymoon phase because we’re looking forward to the festivals. And, we’re sure Villere didn’t mean for this to happen, but we pulled out our calendar while we were reading his column and marked a few more festivals down.

What do you think? Does New Orleans have too many festivals?
