LaBelle's Fun Weekend - Parade And Festival Attracts Crowds
Annual Swamp Cabbage Festival In Hendry County Bring Crowds
LABELLE, FL. -- Thousands of visitors and residents came out Saturday to join the festivities for the annual Swamp Cabbage Festival in LaBelle, Florida.
The day started off with the huge hour-long Swamp Cabbage Festival Parade, as marchers and festive floats flowed down Bridge Street to riverside Barron Park.
Festivities continued at the park along the Caloosahatchee River with plenty of fried foods, drinks and even alligator meat. Music was provided at the gazebo stage while the Rotary Club racing armadillos all day long.
Motorists may have been inconvenienced as Bridge Street and the bridge over the river were closed to traffic for several hours, but giving pedestrians a rare chance to walk freely across the bridge and leisurely watch the boats cruise the river.
