Come celebrate the 47th annual Earth Day in one of Acadiana's most historic and beautiful settings, Vermilionville. Sunday, April 22nd, the Bayou Vermilion District will host activities from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm to celebrate our beloved Mother Earth. Admission is free, so it's a great way to bring the family out for a day of fun in the beautiful outdoors.

You can paddle in Vermilionville's Petit Bayou, enjoy boat tours, craft stations, cheese making demonstrations, and a free yoga class. There are also tons of activities for the kids, including seed planting, paper pot making, fish rubbings and leaf print making.

Live entertainment will be provided by Cedryl Ballou and the Zydeco Trendsetters and Lafayette Rhythms Devils

It's also a great opportunity to clean out your closet and bring gently used clothing and books for the always popular #ReduceReuseRecycle Clothing and Book Swap. And whatever is not claimed will be donated to a local charity, so it's a winning situation either way.

And again this year, a 'Bike to Earth Day' Poker Run, which begins at 11:00 am. For more info call 337-233-4077, and make plans to celebrate the great outdoors on April 22nd at Vermilionville! The schedule of events is below.
