The Louisiana Pirate Festival went Facebook live this afternoon to announce the lineup and activities for the 2019 season. One of the bigger announcements was that all of the live music will be located at the amphitheater this year (like it used to be). There was also word of the arm wrestling contest and the Gator Grand Prix will return to the Lake Charles Civic Center.

As for the entertainment line up, locals will be the focus for your live music enjoyment. For a list of all entertainment and bands during this year's festival, they have it all listed on their website.

Some of the local highlights performing this year are Johnny Jiminez, Rusty Metoyer, and Charlie Wayne!

The festival kicks off May 2nd, runs till May 5th, and will be free to attend.
