Jungle fun

The Tarzan Lord of the Louisiana Jungle Festival was held Friday and Saturday on the grounds of the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium. The festival celebrated 100 years of Tarzan in print and featured viewings of the silent movie and a documentary made on the filming of the 1917 movie in Morgan City. A 5-K run, Tarzan and Jane look-alike contest, best Tarzan yell, tug-of-war, music and more also marked the event. At left, Daniel Besse participated in the costume and yell contests which were judged by descendants of Tarzan author Edgar Rice Burroughs.
