I bet most of you didn't know this Town. Unless you are from the Lafayette, Louisiana, or the Acadiana region and love ducks and hunting dogs. This is the hometown of the annual duck Festival that highlights the hunting heritage of the Acadiana region. It usually occurs the weekend before Labor Day which is August 26-29, 2010.
Events appeal to all ages and tastes. There are dog trials, skeet shooting contests, a grand parade, duck carving and painting demonstrations, and even a wine and cheese party. Bands and music add to the festivity.
Come on over and bring your hunting dogs. You'll have loads of fun and may even get to taste some "Geuydan Courtbouillion" the proper Cajun name for fish stew. I included a link to it's recipe if you miss finding some and you want to try it at home.
