you cant make this shit up...

from the Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival home page...

Welcome to the official home of the Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival. Please join us for our 75th annual festival to be held Sept. 2 - 6, 2010, in picturesque downtown Morgan City, Louisiana. This is an event that will prove that oil and water really do mix. Deep in the heart of Cajun Country, every Labor Day Weekend, tens of thousands of people celebrate at Louisiana's oldest chartered harvest festival.

The festival has been honoring those who have worked tirelessly through rain and shine...and sometimes even hurricanes, to provide the area's economic lifeblood for over half a century. The festival also emphasizes the unique way in which these two seemingly different industries work hand-in-hand culturally and environmentally in this area of the "Cajun Coast."
 
according to the NY Times, the festival is still a go...
