Saturdays at the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center
Music, dancing, food, and crafts: come pass a good time any Saturday at the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center. Every Saturday from 1:00-5:00 p.m., the center hosts folklife demonstrations that share the flavor of life on Louisiana's prairies. There's no admission charge to the center or for the demonstrations.
At 6:00 p.m., head next door to the Liberty Theatre for an evening of live Cajun and zydeco music at Rendez-vous des Cajuns. Ticket and program information for the show is available here or at 337-457-7389.
Laissez les bon temps roulez!
