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.
