More festivals in store for us this weekend, and the fun continues Sunday, Oct 20, at the Bayou Vermilion Festival and Boat Parade at Vermilionville! This is a fantastic way to get the whole family involved in our beautiful Louisiana outdoors, and all for a great cause as well.

The Bayou Vermilion Festival & Boat Parade is a celebration of and on the Bayou Vermilion that aims to increase awareness of the river as a viable source of recreation for Lafayette Parish and also serves as a fundraiser for the Bayou Vermilion District’s efforts along the Vermilion.
