Events by EventfulLaotian New Year
Iberia Parish's not inconsiderable Laotian community holds its New Year celebration, known as Songkran, every Easter weekend, and thousands from near and far will be there to honor a tradition that preserves Laotian culture here in Louisiana. The friendly folks of Lanexang Village and the temple there, Wat Thammarattanaram, offer three days of parades, authentic cuisine and clothing, jewelry, sand castle building, live music and dancing, and children's activities. Melancon Road in Broussard. All are welcome. (337) 364-3403 or find Wat Thammarattanaram on Facebook.
