Sunset Herb & Garden Festival is This Weekend
The Sunset Herb & Garden Festival is scheduled for this weekend in Sunset.
According to the St. Landry Parish Tourist Commission, everything from plants to arts and crafts and even bath and body products will be available for sale. The event also features a "Kid's Corner" with lots of activities geared directly toward children, including educational stuff like speaking with beekeepers and agricultural vendors.
