The Cajun French Music Association (CFMA) motto is preserving the Cajun culture, heritage and language and they have been doing that for several decades now. This Saturday is no different with their annual Cajun Days event.
It's Mardi Gras time in Southwest Louisiana which means balls are going on all over the place but most of the balls you have to be a member of a Krewe.
Well I found you one where you don't have to be a member because it is open to the public.
The 28th Cajun Food & Music Festival opens at the Burton Coliseum complex in Lake Charles on Friday, July 17th, and celebrates all the things we love about south Louisiana.
The Lake Charles Chapter of the Cajun French Music Association sponsors the event filled with great music from Cajun and zydeco bands, delicious food we in south Louisiana love, arts & crafts, and even a French Mass wit
