Cracklin Festival Wraps Up

The annual Port Barre Cracklin Festival wraps up today.

The fest, which is a fundraiser for the Port Barre Lion's Club, is held every year at Veterans Park on Saizan Avenue. Proceeds raise help fund eye exams and glasses for citizens in need.

The event included food, a full carnival, pageants and music.

Gates opened at 10 a.m. this morning, and today's musical performers included JC Melancon and Bayou Rock Band, Alligator Blue and Jeff Bates.

We'll have more on the festival on KATC TV3 later today.
