“As you may have heard, Terrebonne Parish is gearing up for its first annual Hero Fest!” states the official release from organizers Sheriff Tim Soignet, Event President Chief Travis Theriot, and Event Vice President Major Brent Hidalgo. “We are very excited to launch what will continue to be a weekend of fun for our community for years.”

The rest of the statement reads as follows: “The concept of Hero Fest was conceived by Sheriff Tim Soignet, to create a large-scale single event fundraiser for the benefit of area first responders. This includes law enforcement, fire fighters, EMS, and many other emergency workers dedicated to our safety and community. Additionally, this event will provide for other non-profit organizations to raise money for their purposes. The causes they work for benefit those in need, making them heroes as well.
