Today, Sunday May 11th 2014 is the final day of the massive celebration of the pig in Mansura, Louisiana.
The final day always marks what the organizers call “The Grand Feast” and anyone with even passing knowledge of Louisiana’s food culture knows that a phrase like that does not get tossed around easily.
Grand it shall be with multiple hogs being roasted all day and all night.
Mansura is in the heart of Avoyelles Parish approximately 160 miles to the north and west of New Orleans so if you set out right now you can have a big plate of cochon de lait right at lunch time.
