The Cracklin Festival will continue its take over of Port Barre this weekend at Veterans Memorial Park.

The festival began Thursday, November 7 and will continue until Sunday, November 10.

And while the focus will be on the food, of course, it's all for a good cause.

Scott Brazda was LIVE at the festival grounds with the details.

Now in its 34th year, the festival continues to serve up hot cracklin and a good time to those who attend.

The annual fundraiser for the Port Barre Lions Club has transformed over the years, but as organizers say, remains true to its humble roots.

Bringing the communities of St. Landry Parish together, the festival raises funds to support the Louisiana Lions Camp and the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation.

A cracklin cookoff, carnival rides, and live music from Geno Delafose and Lance Dubroc are just a few of the weekend activities.

Festival grounds open at 5:00 pm on Friday and at 10:00 am on Saturday and Sunday.

Admission is $5 per day. Children under 10 and active duty military with a valid military ID get in free.
