The art and culture of wood carving is this festival's raison d'être, a celebration going on thirty-five years now. There'll be a decoy show and auction, carving demos, duck calling, raffles and more. And with a name like Cajun Heritage, rest assured there'll be plenty of gumbo and other traditional treats on hand. Inside the Larose Civic Center, 307 E. 5th Street.
