Event raises awareness for Bayou Vermilion

Posted: Updated:

The good times were flowing at Vermilionville on Sunday for the Bayou Vermilion District's Festival & Boat Parade.

The festival kicked off with a public showing of antique putt-putt boats and engines. Later in the afternoon, the parade featured antique putt-putt boat owners from around the South, a musician's barge with live music as well as local boat owners.

Other activities throughout the day included various boating demonstrations such as wooden boat restoration techniques as well as community discussions with local organizations on Louisiana boat building techniques.

The event was a celebration and a way to increase awareness of the river as a viable source of recreation for Lafayette Parish. It also serves as a fundraiser for the Bayou Vermilion District's efforts along the Vermilion.
