DescriptionAbbeville, in southwestern Louisiana, was founded in 1843 and is the parish seat of Vermilion Parish, which has proclaimed itself “the most Cajun place on earth.” A popular downtown spot is Magdalen Square, which has a gazebo and is shaded by grand old oak trees.
In early November, the Giant Omelette Celebration takes place in downtown Abbeville. While the main event is the cooking of a 5,000-egg omelette in a 12-foot skillet, the family-friendly festival also includes arts and crafts, an antique car show and concerts.
