March 2-4, 2012, marked the return of the Gator Drag show in Rayne, Louisiana. With the show being out of commission the past couple years, the show promoters put on a solid comeback. The show grounds were packed with 375 registered show vehicles and over 1,500 gazing spectators. One thing you cannot control when putting on a show is the weather. Saturday morning consisted of overcast clouds and some rain, which luckily, didn't last too long. No one seemed to let the weather bring down the fun level of the show. Sunday's weather definitely made up for it though with the sun making all the custom rides shine.
For awards, there were Top 75 and numerous "Best Of's" which were made out of actual alligator heads. If you had never tried eating gator, there were a couple different food vendors frying up tasty batches of them. Some more on site vendors slanging products were KIK, KP Concepts, Solo Films, Tuckin' Clothing, The Better Half Accessories, Sparkles Detail, Cambered Video, Tantric Sounds, Economy Signs, Battle Drag, Mad Gear, and Twisted Inc DVD.
For those with the boom in their trunk, there was a USACI stereo contest going on during the show. Kristy Broussard from the popular TV show "Swamp People" was in attendance signing autographs and taking photos for everyone. Saturday night, the show promoters held an after party which included free crawfish and beer.
