The Scott Boudin Festival is now underway, and the smells of, of course, boudin are filling the air once again.
Friday evening, the gates to the festival opened at 5:00 p.m. An opening ceremony followed at 5:30 p.m.
Festival attendees can get their fill of delicious boudin provided by nine vendors, including Don’s Specialty Meats, The Best Stop, and Billy’s Boudin.
The music in Scott has already started, beginning Friday at 6:00 p.m and continuing until 12:00 a.m.
A full music line-up for the festival can be found here.
The festival will continue on Saturday, April 6 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:30 a.m. and Sunday, April 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Festival admission is $5 for Friday and Saturday and free on Sunday.
