Boat Parade & Bayou Fest

September 30, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

$10.00 – $55.00

Save the date for one of the best days on the bayou all year ’round! Gather your friends, your canoe, your cooler, your fiddle, your best costumes, your dog, whatever, and get ready to join us for a day to celebrate the Bayou Vermilion!

This is going to be a great time on the water, and we want you to come a be a part of it. The parade will set sail at 11:30 AM from the dock at Vermilionville, and wind all along the bayou to Southside Park. We’ll have music all the way down the bayou from the New Natives Brass Band, and of course costume, shore party and boat decorating contests!

At the park, we’ll have food and drinks, games, and music! Jumpin’ Jax will have a giant Connect Four game, as well as a fun jump, plus cornhole championship, pétanque and more!! Ask for Ashley will be playing 3-6 PM.

Want to paddle but have no boat? The BVD has got you covered. We’ve got canoes and kayaks available to help you get in the water and experience our own Bayou Vermilion. Registration and rentals available below! UPDATE: All BVD rental vessels have been reserved.
