NEW ORLEANS -- Woody Ruiz of Woody's Fish Tacos is one of seven New Orleans chefs loading two trucks with all the fixings for a festival this weekend.

"We get about 10,000 to 15,000 a day, and they're just people that are eager for New Orleans culture," said Ruiz.

He's talking about Bayou Boogaloo -- not in Mid City, but in Norfolk, Va.

It's the same name but 1,000 miles away.

"The other thing that we bringing up is 10,000 pounds of crawfish, and that was the other thing last year, we had almost a two-hour line for crawfish," said Ruiz.

"We were literally dancing to New Orleans music played by a New Orleans band," recalled Lucy Bustamante about last year's Norfolk Bayou Boogaloo.

Former Eyewitness News anchor Lucy Bustamante is now a Norfolk anchorwoman, and Bayou Boogaloo has became a favorite.
