Bret Hardisty's Woodwork is Rough Around the Edges

All three floors of the Lake Charles Civic Center are rocking as the annual Culture Fest kicks into high gear on a recent Saturday afternoon.

There are people representing many countries from across the globe strolling around in colorful, splashy native garb. There are flowing robes and gowns, flashy jewelry, lavish headdresses, long sashes, big metal bracelets and elaborate makeup.
