Phantom Festival deemed a success

PHANTOM FUNERAL–Prairie du Rocher held their Phantom Festival last Saturday, with one of the highlights being a reenactment of the famous “Phantom Funeral.” Pictured is the procession as it passed by the Creole House.

While there were storms throughout the day on Saturday, July 10, the rain held off just enough to allow the first Phantom Festival in Prairie du Rocher to be a success.

The day started with a 5K run, featured lots of fun opportunities around town during the day, and ended with a reenactment of the famed Phantom Funeral.

One of the event organizers, Laurie Umbdenstock stated that she heard nothing but good compliments about the festival.
