One of our favorite Acadiana festivals is coming up this weekend - the International Rice Festival! The Rice Festival in Crowley is one of Louisiana's largest and also it's oldest Agricultural Festival, held continually since October 5th, 1937. Over 7 million people have attended this annual event! In addition to the awesome food, music, arts and crafts, there is a 5K run/walk, classic car show, Children's parade, Grand Parade, and of course a great carnival for the kids. Check out the schedule of events, and make plans to head to Crowley for the fun!
