WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A piece of Louisiana was in Downtown Wichita Falls as thousands celebrated the 11th Annual Cajun Festival.

It was hosted by Downtown Proud, a non-profit organization whose goal is to revitalize the city's downtown.

There was a ton of family-friendly activities and of course Cajun classic dishes, like boiled crawfish, gumbo and even some fried alligator. 

The non-profit said the turnout and support was amazing

"To see the thousands and thousands that come down and are invested in what we're doing, our goal and mission in downtown in revitalizing, it's kind of an affirmation in what we're doing is right so it's great to see," John Reese Cajun Festival Vice-Chair said

Reese said the goal was to raise at least $40,000 dollars. Last year, they raised about $30,000.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
