2000 Mardi Gras Pictures
Boucherie, Downtown Eunice,
|These pictures were taken at the
start of the annual boucherie in downtown Eunice the Sunday before Mardi Gras. Even before
the official start of the boucherie at 10 a.m., the Cajun French Music Association was
busy making cracklins.
The other pictures show Bubba Frey and Louis Pavur cleaning hair off the hog before beginning the butchering.
Later that morning, the crowd got to watch the preparation of boudin, pork stew, and other dishes. Cajun bands began playing by late morning lasting into mid-afternoon.
