The Larose Regional Park and Civic Center once again is the site of the Cajun Heritage Festival, a traditional wooden duck decoy show and auction, celebrating its 39th year of culture.
The Festival opens to the public at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 6, with decoy judging beginning at 10:30 a.m. Decoy carvers will be on hand demonstrating their talents and skills as well as providing free carving, texturing and painting seminars both Saturday and Sunday. Be sure and stay for the free 3 p.m. duck calling contest which is open to anyone across five divisions.
On Sunday, the doors again open at 9 a.m. and features a duckhead whittling contest, awards presentation and a decoy auction featuring approximately 200 works of art available to the highest bidder.
