Blue Victory Holdings and Hardee’s would like to invite the residents of New Iberia to join us in meeting Junior Edwards along with his wife Theresa and son William from the History Channel show “Swamp People”. Meet the swampers by visiting Hardee’s at 101 E. Admiral Doyle Drive on Sunday from 12pm to 4pm. The swampers will sign autographs so bring your camera for photographs.
“Swamp People” debuted on the History Channel in August 2010. As a reality television series, “Swamp People” follows the daily activities of several swampers during the 30-day alligator hunting season in the Atchafalaya Swamp in Louisiana. The swampers face risks, earning most of their income during the season, controlled by weather and strict wildlife regulations. Carrying on the traditions of their French ancestors exiled from Canada in the 18th century, these Cajuns are struggling to preserve an ancient way of life in an increasingly modern world.
Junior and William spend much of their year in the swamp. In addition to alligator hunting, they take advantage of many other resources of the swamp, including deer, crawfish, crabs, frogs and fish. Theresa does all she can to help them prepare for next season. The show currently airs on Thursdays at 9/8pm central.
Hardee’s of New Iberia is honored to host a visit from “Swamp People.” The swampers prove how much effort and perseverance goes into their work, which ties in beautifully with our dedication to working hard to provide great service. Hardee’s is happy to give back to our loyal customers, as well as our new ones by providing an opportunity to meet reality television personalities from our local area.
