The 36th Annual Cracklin Festival is happening this weekend in Port Barre.

And you don’t want to miss out on all the fun.

The Cracklin Festival is always a good time but it also raises money for a good cause. The Port Barre Lions Club uses funds raised by the Cracklin Festival and other smaller events to support the mission of a number of worthwhile causes like the Louisiana Lions Camp and the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation.

Admission into the festival is $5.00 per person per day Friday thru Sunday. Children 10 and under are admitted free.

Please do not bring ice chests, glass containers, or pets with you.
