<iframe id='palyer12' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=user_uploads&list=caramoormusic'></iframe id='palyer12'>
Caramoor is the legacy of Walter and Lucie Rosen, who established the estate and built a great house as its centerpiece, filling it with treasures collected on their travels. Walter Rosen was the master planner, bringing to reality his dream of creating a place to entertain friends from around the world. Their legendary musical evenings were the seeds of today’s International Music Festival that is held annually on the estate. Walter Rosen’s friend Charles Hoyt first introduced the Rosens to the estate. Hoyt’s mother had an estate in Katonah, a village in the town of Bedford, New York that she was looking to sell. It was named after her – “Caramoor” for Caroline Moore Hoyt. Charles Hoyt, a collector like Walter Rosen, certainly knew of his love for all things Italian. The Hoyt estate, which was more than 100 acres, had a beautifully laid-out Italianate garden, with rows of tall cedars mimicking the ubiquitous cypresses of Italy. The Rosens fell in love with this garden, still found at Caramoor today, and bought the property.

October - Today, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is known worldwide as an event that emphasizes fun flying and camaraderie over serious competition. It’s ironic that the Fiesta got its start, in large measure, as an arena for that most serious of competitions, the World Championships. Albuquerque got the nod as the host city for the world championships when Don Kersten, at the time the President of the Balloon Federation of America (BFA), asked the organizers of the 1972 “first Fiesta” if the city might be willing to bid for the World Championships. Sid Cutter and Tom Rutherford came up with a proposal, which they duly submitted to Kersten. Today, Cutter notes with a chuckle that Kersten carefully didn’t tell him that Albuquerque was the only city he’d approached!

In 1984, a group of brave and loyal North Louisianans decided to take a stand. This group was tired of hearing: “You people in Shreveport are more like Texans than anything else. You’re hardly a part of Louisiana, at all.” So this daring group gathered in the Downtown Shreveport Unlimited office to organize their ranks and pay homage to the most cherished of Louisiana institutions – the crawfish boil! And this group wanted to make their crawfish boil the granddaddy of them all.
