LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

Livingston Parish is playing host to the Cajun Country Jam this Fourth of July weekend.

For the first time, the event is home to the Dukes of Hazzard Reunion. Even with controversy surrounding the Confederate Flag, and the show being pulled from TV Land, hundreds of fans showed up for the meet and greet, as well as concerts and other festivities. Organizers say that even adverse weather conditions are not dampening festival goers’ spirits.

"We got a little rain, but I got to tell you, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t stop in Livingston Parish. They’ll just grab a pirogue and take a seat," said a festival organizer.

The Cajun Country Jam continues Saturday night with a fireworks show and performance by Tracy Lawrence at 9 p.m.
