It’s time to celebrate and take in the natural beauty of the Bayou Teche National Paddle Trail.
The TECHE Project is getting ready for the “Shake Your Trail Feather Paddle Parade and Party in the Parc.” It is Saturday, October 22. The trail is 4.5 miles that could take 2 hours to paddle ending up at Parc des Ponts in Breaux Bridge. There is a slightly longer route that is 6.5 miles that finishes at Lil’s on the Teche.
Two Cajun bands will be following along with the paddlers as they navigate the Teche from Poche Bridge to Breaux Bridge from 10am to noon. Following the paddling parade, there will a free celebration at Parc des Ponts in Breaux Bridge from 11:30 am to 2 pm. Horace Trahan and the Ossun Express will be performing.
If you register before the day of the event the cost is $15 for adults and $10 for children. The price increases to $18 on October 22.
There will also be kid’s activities, food and drinks, bird costume prizes, and a kayak raffle. Come paddle or join the fun with the TECHE Project on October 22nd, in Breaux Bridge.
This event is a fundraiser for the The TECHE Project. The money will go towards building access docks along the Bayou Teche National Paddle Trail.
