Families kick off weekend at Delcambre Shrimp Festival

DELCAMBRE — The Delcambre Shrimp Festival kicked off its weekend festivities Friday night

Families started coming in as soon as the gates opened. President Tracey Trim says more than 4,000 people will participate in the festivities, raising quite a bit of revenue for the town.

“All the money that we raise were a non profit organization, so we dump all the money back into the community and other organizations,” Trim said.

One activity planned for the weekend will be quite different – the water fight. Last year the Delcambre Shrimp Festival’s team took the trophy, but this year…

“We have some injured players, so were just going to take the trophy and let everyone else struggle it out,” Trim joked.

He says he wishes they were able to participate.

“Yeah I’m bummed, but I still have the trophy from last year, so we’ll be alright,” Trim said.

Whether you plan to go for the food, or the music, previous queen Hailey Winch says seeing the community together is her favorite part.

“Just the love and passion you see from everybody is so amazing,” Winch said.

The Shrimp Festival will start again at 10 am on Saturday.
