Mark your calendars! The 4th Annual Cruisin Cajun Country Cruise will be held on May 3-5, 2012 in New Iberia. It’s a time where classic and muscle cars cruise on down to Cajun Country in Louisiana to take advantage of local attractions, award-winning Cajun cuisine, live entertainment and games. Not to mention, it’s a great time to show off some of the hottest cars to hit the streets of Southern Louisiana. Registration is going on now; you’ll find everything you need by filling out the registration form here.
Cruisin Cajun Country Charities
Cruisin Cajun Country hosts a variety of events where locals can show off their cars during poker runs and car shows. They work with both the Habitat for Humanity International and Iberia Habitat for Humanity. These organizations build homes for families living in poverty. A portion of the money earned from the car cruise will be given to these organizations, more specifically, the Iberia Habitat for Humanity. That is why the Cruisin Cajun Country Cruise is more than just fun; it’s a wonderful opportunity to support the local families in New Iberia and St. Mary Parish who do not have adequate housing.
