Celebrating The Vermilion With A Festival And Boat Parade

Vermilion River

The Vermilion River is a body of water with more twists and turns than a good spy novel. It’s also an ecosystem for many of South Louisiana’s delicate flora and fauna. It also serves as a major transportation route to the sea.


The Vermilion is our natural treasure and protecting that treasure is the job of the Bayou Vermilion District.

Just because you’re serious about your job doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. The Bayou Vermilion District is celebrating the river and all it means to Acadiana with a festival and boat parade on Sunday October 20. There will be displays of antique watercraft, boat building demonstrations and special events for children.

There will also be a boat parade down the river. The parade is open to boats, canoes and kayaks but you do need to register for the event.  The parade will float from Vermilionville to the Camellia Bridge. There will be live music and delicious food available and all proceeds from the event will go to support the Bayou Vermilion District.
