Festival organizers are celebrating their successful 7th Annual Bayou Vermilion Festival & Boat Parade.     

On Sunday, dozens of kayaks, canoes and boats stretched from Vermilionville all the way to the Camellia Boulevard Bridge.

"We are so very thankful of everybody that came out today because we do this for them so people can get out on the bayou and enjoy it because, without them, there would be no reason for us to be here. And, we are just very appreciative, and we say merci beaucoup, as we say in French, for everybody that comes out today for the Bayou Vermillion Boat Parade and Festival," said Bayou Vermilion District CEO David Cheramie.
