Louisiana Cattle Festival
Giant Omelette Celebration
This family-oriented event including a kids world kicks off Saturday morning with a charity walk through Historic Downtown Abbeville. Abbeville’s Magdaline Square with its majestic oaks and old fashioned gazebo is the setting for the 2 day Arts & Craft Show. Stop and dance to some of Louisiana’s best music. Antique farm implements provide a challenge to those competing in Saturday’s egg cracking contest. The fun continues on Sunday with addition of the antique cars on display, along with more music guaranteed to get you dancing. Grab your seat early for the procession of chefs, eggs and bread to the Giant 12 foot skillet where fun and follie are the order of day for those preparing the “5000 Egg” Giant Omelette.
