Heavy overnight rains turned the final day of Festival Acadiens et Creole into a bit of a mud bath, and a good pair of boots was needed to maneuver the muddy terrain. However, the mud did not dampen the spirits of this group of Cajuns, in the least, and the show and the dancing went on! A testament to a Cajun's love of a good party, no matter what!
Many others opted for bare feet, if they were doing some serious dancing. And some serious dancing was going on, indeed, as you can see for yourself. It would take a lot more than a little rain and mud to stop these Cajuns from having their good time!
Some really got into it because after all, mud does wash off, and it will be another long year before this festival returns. The lovely blonde in the photo is my dear daughter, and let me tell you, she was dancing up a storm with this guy from New Orleans! I took a lot of videos and will be posting them, here and there, for a long while to come! A Cajun Woodstock, indeed! Now do you know what it means to be a Cajun?
