Let the good times flow during the Bayou Vermilion Festival & Boat Parade! This annual celebration of the Bayou Vermilion begins at Vermilionville and continues downriver for about four miles to the end point and after party that includes live music, food, and refreshments. Attendees can rent a canoe or kayak or bring their own paddle craft or motorized boat to join in the parade. The purpose of event is to increase awareness of the river as a viable source of recreation for Lafayette Parish citizens. In addition, we celebrate the efforts of Bayou Vermilion District to conserve and preserve sites along the river, trash/debris clean up and water quality management.
