Is it really a festival in Louisiana if there’s not a queen to preside over the attending rabble? Every festival worth its salt has a queen, but as near as we can tell the Louisiana Hot Sauce Festival, held this weekend in Lafayette, has no sovereign.
You can’t have a kingdom without a queen.
Our interest is therefore limited. But there will be hot sauce, and presumably boudin and maybe even a pistolette or two. And a competition to determine who the king of hot sauce is in our great state. But sadly that king will have nary a consort as the hot sauce festival is queen-less.
We’ll be sitting this one out, but if you’re in the mood to drive to Lafayette here’s the website for the concern http://www.lahotsaucefest.com/
