The Bayou Vermilion District formed a procession on the bayou on Saturday with letting "the good times flow" with their tenth annual bayou festival and boat parade.

The mission of the event: to bring attention to the river as a source of recreation for all of Lafayette.

"You see these people that have got the really great flat bottom wooden pirogues that you know, they made themselves... like somebody in their family made themselves," said Brady Mckellar of the Bayou Vermilion District." And to me, I always love to see that in the water because it sort of demonstrates the cultural and the historic connection that the people of Lafayette have to this body of water."

These efforts are organized to conserve and preserve sites along the river, trash/debris cleanup and water quality management.
