Frankie Falgout named as FFF Grand Marshall.

Mr. Frankie Falgout has been named Grand Marshal of this year’s French Food Festival. This year will mark the Festival’s 40th Anniversary.

Falgout, a resident of Larose, is the son of Floyd, Sr. and Rena Mae Adams Falgout.  He and his wife Angela Folse have been married for 34 years. Frankie is the son-in-law of Jules and Shirley Folse of Raceland.  They are the proud parents of Drew, Jude and Crystal. Frankie also has 6 siblings, 36 nieces and nephews, and 41 great nieces and nephews. Family is very important to the Falgouts.

Mr. Falgout is a graduate of South Lafourche High School and has been the proud owner/ founder of Frankie Falgout Trucking for more than 26 years!

Frankie enjoys riding motorcycles, driving 18-wheelers and traveling on vacations with his family.  He enjoys high school sports and watching LSU and Saints football games.  He especially enjoyed coaching his children in sports and watching his daughter Crystal play tennis.  He has been bowling with his middle son, Jude, every Wednesday for the past 8 years. Frankie is also proud of his oldest son, Drew, for helping to run their trucking business while they move forward into their second generation of business.

Mr. Falgout is an avid supporter of the Larose Civic Center and its many events dating way back to when the Spring Festival was still the Holy Rosary Church Fair.  Frankie and Angela have donated their time picking up ice for events through their trucking company . . . a volunteer job they still do today for both of the Civic Center’s festivals. 

For many years they have donated the stage for all of the Civic Center’s outside events including fairs, festivals and company picnics.  Frankie Falgout Trucking has sponsored softball teams, auction items and festival booths, including the Senior Citizen’s Sweet Booth for the French Food Festival!  Angela Falgout is a great baker and she yearly buys, bakes and donates hundreds of pieces of heavenly hash, pralines, peanut butter fudge and more to support the festival as a part of their community support.

Mr. Frankie Falgout, Grand Marshal XXXVI, invites everyone to bring a chair, grab their dancing shoes and come to the festival the weekend of October 25, 26 and 27th.
