Are you ready for a visit from the Swamp People, one of History Channel’s most popular television shows? Those crazy Cajuns are coming to the Wharf in Orange Beach for the Gulf Coast Yacht & Boat Super Show
A quick synopsis on the History Channel’s website reads: “Deep in the heart of Louisiana lies America’s largest swamp, a million miles of inhospitable bayous, marshes and wetlands where nature rules and humans struggle to tame it. Many of its inhabitants are the hardened descendants of French refugees who were forced out of Canada in the 18th century and settled in this harsh yet majestic environment. Today, these people are known as Cajuns, a group renowned throughout the world for their flavorful cuisine, distinctive music and vibrant culture. Resilient, self-reliant and fiercely independent, the Cajuns of the Atchafalaya Swamp still carry on many of their ancestors’ trades and traditions.
HISTORY follows these swampers through a time of year that is crucial to their survival: the 30-day alligator hunting season. At its core, this is a uniquely American story of a proud and skillful people fighting to maintain an ancient way of life in a rapidly modernizing world, despite the many perils and trials that stand in their way.”
New to this year’s Super Boat Show event is a gigantic Hunting and Fishing Expo at the Orange Beach Event Center at The Wharf. Two of the many Celebrity Appearances will be Trapper Joe & Trigger Tommy. Trapper Joe and his stepson Trigger Tommy have hunted together since Tommy was a little boy. Joe is passing on to Tommy all the swamp secrets he learned from his own father. Forgetful Tommy can sometimes be a handful, but this gator-hunting team always ends up delivering the goods. Come and meet Joe & Tommy. They will be appearing Friday March 30th from 1-3pm and 5-7pm and Saturday 11am-1pm and 3-5pm.
