Jammin’ 98.3 and McDonald’s have a chance for you and a friend to attend this year’s Essence Festival in New Orleans over the 4th of July weekend.

Just stop by the McDonald’s at 7451 W. Appleton Avenue for lunch on Thursday, May 9 from Noon-1:30pm and drop your name in the registration box.

If your name is randomly selected, you’ll be headed to New Orleans.  This year’s Essence Festival features Beyonce, Maxwell, TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine & Tank), Jill Scott, LL Cool J, Brandy, Charlie Wilson and MANY more of R&B’s greatest artists.

Plus while you’re there pick up a McDonald’s “365 Black” tote bag while supplies last.

All entries from the van stops on 5/4, 5/7, 5/9 and 5/11 will go into one hopper and two winners will be randomly selected.  Each winner will receive roundtrip air for two from Milwaukee to New Orleans, a pair of tickets for each night of the festival and hotel accommodations.  Winners will be contacted by phone the week of May 13.
