The Louisiana Fur and Wildlife Festival is held yearly during January in Cameron, Louisiana. The schedule is full of activities that both the young and old enjoy. Letâ€™s take a look at what will be at the Louisiana Fur and Wildlife Festival.
A carnival with games and rides will be set up on the fairgrounds. There will be special bands providing music for dances, and everyone will enjoy eating at the food booths. A city parade is one of the festivalâ€™s highlights. Competitions
Competitions will run the gamut of outdoor life in Louisiana. Trap setting, skeet shooting, nutria and muskrat skinning, oyster shucking and duck and goose calling are a sample of what to expect. This year, much to the delight of the visitors, the hunting dog trials were back.
Lavish pageants will be held in several divisions. There is a 0-6 year old division, the Miss Cameron division, the King Fur division and the favorite pageant of all: the Festival Queen.
The gumbo cook-off
The competing teams prepare gumbo for a minimum of 20 people, choosing between seafood, chicken or wild game for their meat. A sample will be presented to the judges to taste, after which visitors will have the opportunity to sample the different recipes as well.
