LAFAYETTE - It was described as as a huge turnout over the weekend at Cajun Field even though football season is still months away.

All the action was in the parking lot as folks lined up for household chemical day.

The program allows residents to drop off old paint, gasoline, herbicides and other hazardous material that should not be thrown in with regular household garbage.

The event was sponsored by Lafayette onsolidated government and will be held again this coming fall.
