Louisiana Daily Photo: Steen’s Pure Cane Syrup

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

I spent a few hours in Vermillion Parish this past weekend. Our great state produces enough sugar cane to provide refined sugar for 53 million people per annum.

In Louisiana we know how to raise cane.

At Hansen’s Sno Bliz in New Orleans their icy confections are powered by pure Louisiana cane.

I keep a jug of Poirier’s Real cane syrup in my cupboard at all times.

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

I did not catch this young lady’s name but I shot her yesterday in Abbeville at the big Louisiana Cattle Festival.

She is the 2017 queen of the affair and is most beauteous.

The festival originated on September 24, 1949. It has been on my radar for years but getting out of New Orleans on a second line Sunday is nearly impossible.

UPDATE: Gabrielle Guilbeau is the 2017 Louisiana Cattle Festival Queen. May her reign be an auspicious one.
