Wild times were had in Eunice, the “Prairie Cajun Capital” of Louisiana earlier this year at the 2018 World Championship Crawfish Etouffee Cook-off.
We were hung up at work and not able to attend but thousands of people thronged the downtown, near the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center.
Over ten thousand people call Eunice home, and reports indicate nearly every resident was at the big food shootout.
When the dust settled the winners were adjudged to be:
Amateurs– 1st Place, Eunice Career & Technical Center
2nd Place, Pa-Ta-Sa Cooking Crew
3rd Place, Fontenot’s Lawn service
Professional– 1st Place, L’Acadie Inn
2nd Place, Lakeview Park & RV.
Clubs and Organizations– 1st Place, Progressive Tractor
2nd Place, Grace Home Health
