‘Swamp People’ to visit Ruston
The Swamp People — Junior and Willie Edwards — will be celebrity guests for Cedar Creek Celebration 2012.
Cedar Creek Celebration 2012, Fais Deaux Deaux on de Bayou is scheduled for Saturday. To kick off the Cajun themed event, the legendary stars of the History Channel’s “Swamp People,” will be featured as celebrity guests. “Swamp People” takes viewers on a journey to the bayous and swamplands of southern Louisiana, where the people who live there are known as Cajuns.
Junior Edwards, a legendary swamper for over three decades, and son Willie, hunt alligators throughout the 30 day season in the bayous and swamplands of the Atchafalaya. The Atchafalaya River Basin is the largest swamp in the United States and one of the country’s most ecologically unique regions.
