Now that is a heck of a lineup, right? This is the 51st year of the Rayne Frog Festival and according to their website, the reason for the festival is,

We will pay homage to the Agricultural industry in Rayne and Acadia Parish. We will also celebrate all of the culture, memories, traditions, music, and food that have made our festival so wonderful throughout the years. We will return to our “roots” and celebrate how it all began, “Living Off The Land.”

So make plans and go out and have some fun this weekend just East of Lake Charles on I-10 and experience the Rayne Frog Festival.
