Hello Acadiana Road Show: Vermilion Parish

It's called "The Most Cajun Place on Earth" and it's the next stop on our Hello Acadiana Road Show. We're talking about Vermilion Parish.

Vermilion Parish is 170 years old. The mostly English but also Cajun French speaking coastal parish is home to a diverse culture. It's landscape is filled with bayous and farmlands. Here they are known for excellent cuisine with several restaurants serving up some of the state's freshest seafood that thanks to the parish's proximity to the Gulf of Mexico.

On Wednesday we are showcasing it all from the history of parish to the beautiful St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church, Rockefeller Park and the islands, Cow, Forked and Pecan. And of course a look at the popular fairs and festivals Vermilion Parish has to offer and that includes the Cattle Festival, the Delcambre Shrimp Festival, the Gueydan Duck Festival and the one of a kind, giant Omelette Festival to name a few.

We'll also meet some of the parish's living legends and we'll get the latest economic forecast for Vermilion Parish, one of Acadiana's most scenic regions.

Join us at Magdalen Square in Abbeville this Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 7p.m. as we host a live broadcast! We will be featuring profiles of Vermilion Parish history and culture, as well as live interviews with parish civic leaders. Come hungry and bring your dancing shoes “Mooney’s on da Move” food truck will be on location and there will be a free concert featuring Richard Lebouef!

Our coverage is sponsored by Henderson Implement and Marine. If weather conditions require us to relocate we will be moving the show to the Cattle Festival barn. See you there!
