Black Gold Days opens on the June 14 with a carnival and the new pageant. The carnival and vendor booths are open Friday June 15 along with live musical performances from Steve Liddell, John Dooley, and more. The final day of festivities, June 16, includes a horseshoe tournament, frog and turtle races, and the newly crowned Miss Black Gold will lead the Black Gold Parade.

Of course, expect traditional fair food alongside Cajun and German delights to satisfy your buds throughout the celebration.
