The men in my family are your typical “gear heads” so anything with a motor in it generally gets their attention. For the last four years, we’ve been attending the annual Stars and Stripes in the Park Classic Car Show and Cruise Night in Sulphur, La. This year, it kicks off Friday, Sept. 12 from 7-10 p.m. with a Hospitality Night and live music by Martin Duplechin at Heritage Square in Sulphur, 900 S. Huntington St., Sulphur. The car show continues on Saturday, Sept. 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.My stepdad, Brad Fontenot, always puts one of his hot rods in the show, so we enjoy going to support him and see the other vehicles there on display. Anything goes from classic cars, hot rods, rat rods, trucks to motorcycles. Entry for the show vehicle and spectators is free, and it is a great family event with food booths, live music and entertainment for children.
More than 500 vehicles participate in the annual
Stars and Stripes Classic Car Show.
“This is one of the largest car shows in Southwest Louisiana and anyone who is a car enthusiast from Texas to Louisiana is there. Everybody waits to see the cruise at the end of the event,” said Brad Fontenot, who will be entering his black 1966 Volvo this year.

“Boudin is as much a part of Southern Louisiana culture as Cajun music or gumbo,” said Thom Trahan, event coordinator and executive director of Henning Cultural Center.

for People’s Choice.
"We wanted to do a food-related event here at the Henning Cultural Center,” said Trahan. “When the CVB approached us to help coordinate this event, it immediately appealed to us from the arts and culture side of it – we want to see mastery in the art of cooking. It’s a great opportunity for the public to come and sample good boudin from around the region.”For more information, visit www.brimstonemuseum.org, www.facebook.com/boudinwars or call Thom Trahan at 337-527-0357.
