It’s a wonderful Louisiana tradition that dates back a couple hundred years, and in St. James Parish folks are busy preparing for their big Festival of the Bonfires in Lutcher this weekend. Sheba Turk has a preview of the annual festival and all of the events involved.
The 24th Annual Festival of the Bonfires is Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Lutcher Recreational Park on La. Highway 3193. For more information, including the line-up of festivities, click here.
