My friend Todd lives in a small Cajun town called Church Point La. Church Point is a town in Acadia Parish, Louisiana. St. Landry Hospital, has organized an annual Buggy Festival, held in Church Point on the first weekend in June. The town was chosen because residents had used buggies as their main means of transportation until the early 1950s, earning Church Point the nickname “Buggy Capital of the world” in 1927. The town now proudly calls itself the “Cajun Music Capital of the World,” based on “having the greatest number of professional Cajun musicians of any place on earth.” A different Cajun musician is honored each year on Cajun Day, the second Sunday in November. The most celebrated town for Mardi Gras it is famous for the Courir de Mardi Gras.
