Let’s let the good times flow on Sunday, October 21 for Bayou Vermilion District’s Bayou Vermilion Festival and Boat Parade! The Festival is a celebration on the river and one of it’s goals is to increase awareness of the river as a viable source of recreation for Lafayette Parish. You do not want to miss out on this fun event!

The Festival will kick-off with a showing of antique putt-putt boats at 10 am. and members of the community can speak with the boat owners about their boats and engines. Other activities for the day include babbitt pouring and boat restoration demonstrations, canoeing, children’s activities, and live music by Goldman Thibodeaux and The Lawtell Players and more.

The boat parade will launch at 2 pm. with a send-off toast by Grand Marshal, Lafayette Parish President Joey Durel. The parade will end with a celebration at Cochon restaurant around 5 pm. with live music by Christine Balfa & Friends, dancing, food and drinks. Residents and businesses that are located along the parade route are encouraged to join with family and friends and watch the parade! Those who are not located along the parade route may watch from Vermilionville, Beaver Park, Rotary Point or at Cochon restauarant.

Those who wish to participate in the parade with their boats, canoes or kayaks can register their water craft by visiting BayouVermilionville.org/BayouFest or calling (337) 233-4077. A requested donation of $10 for all participants in the parade will go towards the Bayou Vermilionville District’s efforts to keep the river clean and viable as a source of recreation for the citizens of Lafayette Parish.
