The cloudy weather and forecasted rain put a damper on attendance, but did not stop many from coming to the free entrance event. A local rock band set up on the outdoor stage to entertain the festival visitors with music.

Sour orange pies were featured, along with colourful quilts, jewelry, and handcrafts. Of course the food booths were dominant serving many different eats including bbq ribs and chicken, fried alligator, corn dogs, kebab, sausages, cotton candy, and more.

The interesting history of Lakeport was one of the many indoor displays.

I am an avid traveller who believes that travel means participation. Whether it be observing traditional cultures, eating native delicacies, or drinking local drinks, one must fully immerse oneself to truly understand and enjoy a destination.
