Periodically throughout the festival the Buccaneers of Lake Charles will be doing cannon shooting demonstrations to show how they are loaded, fired and cleaned. The Buccaneers provide their
fire-armed services at all McNeese State University home football games during the season. The cannons have been fired as a part of the "Landing of Jean Lafitte" but as a special treat they will
be showcasing their black powder skills on both Fridays and Saturdays of the 2015 festival.
