The Louisana Fur and Wildlife Festival is known as one of the oldest and coldest festivals in Louisiana. There are many fun activities for family and friends to participate in. Young ladies can participate in the pageant, to compete for the position of La Fur and Wildlife Festival Queen. Young teenagers also can participate and compete for Parish positions.
For those who aren’t big fans of pageants but love outdoor activities, the weekend is full of competitions that sportsmen can participate in: dog trials where you see which dog is the best at retrieving, duck and goose calling, and trap shooting.Additional information can be found at http://animalblawg.wordpress.com/2012/03/03/4650/. Muskrat and nutria skinning is also a competition that can be found at this festival. The first Louisiana Fur and Wildlife Festival ever held had a muskrat skinning competition and the winner skinned a total of five muskrats in only 53 3/5 seconds, quite a feat! Oyster shucking is another competition that takes place. While it is fun to compete against each other, it also is fun to watch competitors go for the win.
The Louisiana Fur and Wildlife Festival is a fun event for sportsmen and people who enjoy the outdoors. It’s a festival where everyone can have a good time.
