The Ragin’ Cajun Catholics at Our Lady of Wisdom Church and Catholic Student Center hosted their Boilin’ Bash Saturday night at the Blackham Coliseum.

The Boilin’ Bash featured live entertainment by the Pine Leaf Boys while guests enjoyed a dinner of boiled shrimp and fried catfish. Some guests also enjoyed local craft beer, courtesy of Bayou Teche Brewing.

Now in it’s 35th year, the Boilin’ Bash benefits the Ragin’ Cajun Catholics Student Ministry on UL’s campus. The event attracts 1,000 guests, and organizers say it sells out each year.

Admission included dinner, Bayou Teche beer, and a chance to win the $10,000 raffle grand prize.
