|23rd Franklin Parish Catfish Fest April 4 in Winnsboro|
Fried catfish, great music and family fun will fill downtown Winnsboro April 4 as the 23rd annual Franklin Parish Catfish Festival takes over the historic downtown district.
The event -- the largest one-day festival in the state -- will get underway at 8 a.m. and continue through 5 p.m.
The entertainment line-up is lively this year, ranging from Christian rock band 33Miles to party band The Bluz Boys; from Breaux Bridge native Hunter Hayes to rapper/singer B.Reith. The festival will once again host the North Louisiana Fiddling Contest this year and all fiddling enthusiasts are invited to participate. Other musical guests will play everything from rock to country and gospel to blues on three stages on the festival grounds.
Festival food will also cater to all tastes. Homegrown fried catfish will be in abundance along with a wide variety of festival fare.
Shoppers can enjoy close to 300 arts and crafts and commercial booths. A large antique car show will return, along with a flower show and quilt exhibition. New this year will be the "Adrenaline Jam Tour," an electronic gaming attraction featuring all the latest in recreational game platforms.
Back by popular demand will be a large "Challenge 2 Adventure" attraction offering recreational competition for kids of all ages, ranging from an "obstacle course" to a "bungee run" and "bouncy boxing."
An admission fee of $3 will be charged, with proceeds designated for festival expenses along with community projects supported by the festival.
Franklin Parish is the largest producer of farm-raised catfish in the state and is also home to a catfish processing plant. The festival originated in 1987 to promote and celebrate the local catfish industry.
