PROCESSION OF CHEFS:
Members of the Giant Omelette Celebration march through the streets of Abbeville to greet the crowd. The procession is held on Sunday afternoon and is a sign that the cooking is about to begin.
The "chefs" lead the procession down Concord Street to the 12' skillet. Then....let the cracking begin!!
French Bread provided by Poupart's Bakery is part of the procession. It is cut and served with the Omelette. Poupart Bakery, Inc., Lafayette, LA. is the only bakery in Louisiana that carries cakes, cookies, French pastries, and French bread. They deliver to many of the finest restaurants and stores in Southwest Louisiana from Lake Charles to Baton Rouge.
