It's festival season in Louisiana! And we are so blessed to be able to choose from so many wonderful events to commemorate our heritage and culture. This Saturday, November 9th, head to Henry Guidry Memorial Park in Henderson for the annual Atchafalaya Basin Festival. The festival celebrates the biggest river swamp in the United States, and is a fundraiser for Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Henderson, and Sacred Heart of Jesus Chapel in Butte La Rose. This is their 12th year.

Enjoy fantastic local music, a cooking contest, arts and crafts vendors, and lots of activities for the kids. Check out the entertainment lineup in the video below, or right here, and make plans to come out and support one of our most unique local festivals, sha!
