The Swine Festival is the smallest
of the festivals I have yet been to
and it feels almost like a family
barbeque for a really big family
who just happen to know the best
Zydeco bands. From the tiny
Swine royals to the elderly couple
dancing under the pig barn roof,
it was a true all-ages party.
The welcome was warm,
the music great, and
I thank Basile for sharing
its tradition with me.
