This year there will be two options for those who decide to partake in the event.

Option A is the typical 4.5 mi./2 hr. paddle to Parc des Ponts in Breaux Bridge.

Option B is a longer 6.5 mi./2.45 hr. paddle to Lil’s on the Teche in Breaux Bridge.

Tickets for this year's event are $15 for adults, and $10 for children 12 and under before the day of the event. On the day of the event, the prices will go up to $18 for adults and $12 for children. Both prices do include the festival pin.

There will be two bands that will accompany the paddlers down the bayou. They will provide music and entertainment as the paddlers make their way down the bayou.
