Sheriff Greg Champagne’s first Spring Cochon de Lait was a success on Sunday afternoon, April 17.

Over 1,000 people from across St. Charles Parish showed up to support the Sheriff.


Participants had the opportunity to dance to the music of Wayne Toups and ZyDeCajun band, and to enjoy good Cajun food.


“Thanks to everyone who came out and made our 1st Annual Cochon De Lait a great success,” Champagne said in a release. “A good time was had by all.”


The event was held at Historic Homeplace on River Road in Hahnville and was hosted by the Committee to Re-elect Sheriff Greg Champagne.


The event was so successful that the committee plans to host it annually from now on.

Pick up the April 28 issue of the St. Charles Herald Guide for a full page of pictures from the event.

Emily Charles, 21, had begun to drive herself and five longtime friends from a Luling hotel to Southern California on Feb. 18 when she rear-ended a vehicle and lost control of her SUV at the intersection of Louisiana highways 3127 and 3142 near Dow Chemical Co. in Killona. Charles hit the brakes, but could not avoid clipping the back of the car.
“After that, I don’t even know what happened. We must have flipped,” Charles said.
