As spring nears, so does the weekend of delectable Cajun delights, live music and Acadiana joie de vivre.
The sixth annual Scott Boudin Festival is weeks away from hitting the stage April 6-April 8, featuring acts such as Kevin Naquin, Geno Delafose and Keith Frank. Admission is $5 Friday and Saturday, and attendees have the option of purchasing a $45 Boudin Carnival Passport, which offers free admission and unlimited rides throughout the weekend.
Admission Sunday - the festival’s designated family fun day - is free. Festivities include a Catholic mass, arts and crafts and a boudin eating contest.
Attendees are able to shuttle to and from the festival to sites such as the Holiday Inn Express off Interstate 10, Scott Park and KOA, a service new to the festival.
“We’re expecting a great turnout,” says Rosalyn Noel, Boudin Festival secretary-treasurer.
