Today on 'Mornings With Ken and Bernie' organizer of the St. Martinville Catfish Festival organizer Jeff Bigelow visited to outline weekend events.  The inaugural event takes place this Friday through Sunday at Catfish Heaven in St. Martinville.

According to Bigelow,

The music line-up is amazing with Percy Sledge Saturday night at 9:00.  Other bands include Feu Follet, Lil Nathan, Chris Ardoin, Greg Martinez and the Delta Kings, Cedric Watson, Horace Trahan and Jaryd Lane.  Cupid kicks thing off at 9:00 this Friday Night.

The festival will be held at Catfish Heaven in St. Martinville and Bigelow said it's easy to find.

The corner of Cypress Island Road and Lake Martin Road, that's the easiest way to find it.

Tickets are only $7.00 for adults but Bigelow says there are options for those willing to contribute more towards the $25,000 pledge to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  Bigelow said,

We also have VIP entrances that are $50 but that's get you 'meet and great' time with the artists.  For $75.00 you get reserved seating at tables along with the 'meet and greats'.
