Local Laotian’s Celebrate New Year


For Laotian's, Friday marked a very special day, the start of the Laos New Year. Events take place throughout the world including right here in Acadiana. A three day celebration happens yearly in Coteau. It's there you'll find traditional food, clothing, music and rituals. On Friday morning, the celebration's first action was an offering to the monks in a Buddhist ceremony. Saturday a parade will take place and it all wraps up Sunday with a water festival that washes away bad luck, sins and weakness.
