This Might Just Be The Most Unique Festival In All Of Louisiana

Louisiana is no stranger to festivals, that’s for sure. We’re known as the “Festival Capital of the World” for a reason — just about every weekend there’s a festival happening somewhere in the state. There’s one festival coming up that’s so unique, we guarantee you’ve never seen anything like it before. Let’s take a look at what makes the Acadiana Dragon Boat Races so special.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The festival takes place on March 24th at 8 a.m. at Bouligny Plaza in New Iberia.
