2009 Redfish Cup July 31 to Aug. 2 in Chalmette before ESPN2 cameras

After record breaking crowds and successful events in St. Bernard Parish in
2004, 2005 and 2008, the Redfish Cup Tournament filmed for ESPN 2 will
return to Chalmette, LA . This year the tournament and festival will be held
at Gulf Outlet Marina off Paris Road on Friday, July 31st - Sunday, August
2nd. St. Bernard Parish, the only stop in Louisiana, is one of the five
stops selected to host the tournament where 54 teams of some of the best
professional anglers from around the country compete at the Chalmette event
for $50,000 to the 1st place team. The event will feature a "Tailgate Party"
festival each day with local food, live music, children's activities,
exhibits, sports related promotional items and the live weigh-in each day at
3 p.m. Returning again this year is the popular "Splash Dog" competition
where dogs compete for the longest jump.

The Committee will bring back the White Boot Decorating Contest and the
popular Pirogue Races which was very popular among the local businesses.
