Cajun Helifest 2019

by Clay Ricks   April 18, 2019

Cajun Helifest 2019 was amazing. This was my first time at the event. The first thing I noticed was the hospitality. The folks from Southern Louisiana were amazing. I never felt more welcome so quickly at an event. They've put on a great event for several years now. The event drew in people from all over the country.

I personally love cajun and creole food and they didn't let me down. One night we had crawfish and another we had gumbo. Even had a little boudin one morning.

The most interesting thing was the heli fishing. They had a contest in which a string was attached to the heli and then they hovered over the pond in an attempt to catch a fish. The winner got a nibble so unfortunately I didn't get to see one caught but I'm told that they have caught some in previous years.

I'd like to say thank you to guys that do the work to host the event. I will be back for sure.
