SCOTT, La. (AP) - Despite rainy weather over the weekend, officials at the second annual Boudin Festival in the town of Scott say the event was a success. 

Scott Mayor Purvis Morrison estimates 10,000 attended the festival, which began Friday evening and continued through the weekend.

Morrison said it was good for the town to have a culturally based celebration, like so many other towns in Acadiana have, that can draw in local and out-of-state tourists.

Morrison said that he and the festival board - as well as 200 event volunteers - had eyed the weather nervously all week.
