Grand Isle to host Tarpon Rodeo this weekend
GRAND ISLE- Thousands will descend on Grand Isle this weekend for the International Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo.
The rodeo, which began in 1928, is touted as the oldest fishing tournament in the United States.
Mayor David Camardelle says the rodeo weekend draws about 30,000 people to the island, which usually has fewer than 1,500 people.
While the weekend has become known as much for the party as the sport, Camardelle says the rodeo has become more family oriented during the past decade.
