Louisiana Crawfish Festival
Chalmette, LA 
St. Bernard County, USA
  Held on the Last  Weekend of March
    for 4 day(s)
Description: 2004 marks the 29th anniversary of the Louisiana Crawfish Festival. As in past years, the festival will be held on the grounds of the St. Bernard Cultural Center (8245 W. Judge Perez Dr.) in Chalmette, Louisiana. The festival draws people from the entire metro area as well as from other states and even other countries! Food and fun for all ages are available. The festival will offer over sixty amusement rides for children of all ages and 40 booths of games and attractions of all kinds will be there for your pleasure. The arts and crafts area that was introduced in 2003 will be back and it will be bigger and better than ever. The rock-climbing wall will return to challenge the young and the old. And the Louisiana Crawfish Festival will have plenty of what it is most famous for…CRAWFISH! The festival will feature over 25 different crawfish dishes. And for those who don’t like crawfish (Do those people really exist?) the festival will have a wonderful selection of non-crawfish dishes. Also, the 2004 version of the festival is boasting one of the greatest entertainment lineups in the festival’s history. In addition to our great lineup of bands (see below) the mascots and dance teams of many local professional sports teams will be making appearances this year along with a scheduled appearance by the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer. Miss Louisiana Crawfish Festival will be joined in 2004 by Miss Teen Louisiana Crawfish Festival, Ms. Louisiana Crawfish Festival, Baby Miss Louisiana Crawfish Festival and Master Louisiana Crawfish Festival. The Louisiana Crawfish Festival 5K Road Race returns for its second year and of course we cannot forget the World-Famous Crawfish Races! The Louisiana Crawfish Festival is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. The Knights are a charitable organization that gives back to the community by helping such groups as Children's Hospital of New Orleans, public and parochial schools in St. Bernard, youth programs such as the Boy Scouts, summer camps for the local youths, the St. Bernard Battered Women’s Shelter and many more. Most of the proceeds will go back into the local community. Come and bring the whole family to the Louisiana Crawfish Festival. Take I-10 to I-510 South (Chalmette exit). Continue south on Highway 47 (Paris Road) to Highway 39 West (Judge Perez Dr.). Turn left and go two miles to the St. Bernard Civic Center and the festival.

Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival
Madisonville, LA 
St Tammany Parish County, USA
  Held on the Third  Weekend of October
    for 2 day(s)
Description: A Different Kind of Festival Just about any weekend, somewhere in Louisiana there’s a festival celebrating one of the joys found in the state where Laissez Les Bon Temps Roule is a way of life. Many of these are a celebration of the food, especially the seafood – shrimp, crabs, fish, crawfish, and oysters – that make this area a gourmet’s paradise for residents and a legend around the world. This bounty we enjoy is only possible because of the rich, watery landscape of rivers, bayous, marshes and lakes we have in southeastern Louisiana, a populace that has made harvesting these resources a central part of their culture for over three hundred years, and a unique collection of boats that has evolved to operate in this maritime environment. Every year, St. Tammany hosts a tribute not to seafood, but to the hand crafted wooden boats that originally made it possible for us to enjoy these marine delicacies. This year on October 16th and 17th, the 15th annual Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival will return to the banks of the Tchefuncte River. Hundreds of boats will line the banks of the Tchefuncte River and as many as 30,000 wooden boat, music, food and craft enthusiasts are expected to attend some or all of the activities on what is typically a lovely fall weekend. In addition to the craftsmanship and mystique of building, owning and operating classic wooden boats, both locals and visitors from near and far are drawn to this one of a kind festival by its wide variety of attractions and activities designed for the whole family. Visitors are fascinated by the beautifully restored and maintained wooden boats themselves, and can also sample a wide assortment of Louisiana food favorites and shop at craft booths selling marine-related products, art, and handmade craft items. Each day, at a venue dubbed “Woodenstock,” a lineup of top popular local musical groups like the Blue Meanies, Four Unplugged, the Chee Wheez, and the Topcats will play. The always popular Children’s Village with a new lineup of entertainment and activities especially designed for the young ones should be more popular than ever this year, and the annual “Quick and Dirty Boat Race” will draw thousands of spectators to see if boats that were hastily built in a few hours on Saturday can stay afloat on Sunday. The festival is the primary source of funding for the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum, which has a mission of researching, preserving, and displaying to the public the incredibly rich maritime history of Lake Pontchartrain and the waterways flowing in and out of it. Since opening its first exhibits a little over a year and a half ago, the Museum has assembled a collection that has been extremely well received by visitors, who do not expect to find something of this size and quality in the quaint little town of Madisonville.
    Entertainment: Bands from 3 - 7 Both days Enormous Children's Village All Day 10-6 Both Days
