After Lafayette lost a prominent sports event and cancelled two summer festivals, the city’s left to fill those gaps in the calendar.

The Taste of Tippecanoe is just days away, and it’s always a big draw for the city – but there may be a wave of Lafayette-branded events on the horizon for the city’s redeveloped hot spots.

This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, we talk fun in the sun with Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski.

We ask why people come to – or stay in – Lafayette to spend their summer vacation, and how the city’s trying to build its own traditions for the people who live there, while attracting those who don’t.

Plus, we find out more about what the new Five Points neighborhood will look like after its multi-million dollar, decades-long facelift. Or is it a total makeover?
