Those in Vermilion Parish are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Relay for Life event.

Relay for Life is the America Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser.

This year’s event is happening at Magdalen Square in downtown Abbeville with food and live entertainment.

Relay for Life provides the opportunity for the community to join together with cancer survivors, caregivers, and businesses to raise money for patients and research.

Last year alone, the American Cancer Society provided over 300 services to over 200 cancer patients from Vermilion Parish.

The event is going on until about midnight.
