Paddle to the Party – The paddle trip is currently scheduled for 10 to 12 from Poche Bridge to the festival grounds at Parc des Pontes (St. Bernard School). You do not need to register as this is a free event. The TECHE Project will have a tip bucket if you feel inclined to share your love for what we are doing on the bayou. Please bring a life vest and plan to be at Poches by 9:30 to check in and hear the safety briefing. We have a shuttle bus that will leave from the festival at 9 am. You can drop off boats at Poches Country Club, send driver to the Festival grounds to park car behind Cemetery and jump on the shuttle by the boat launch. Shuttle cost is $5, but well worth the price because your vehicle will be waiting to load up after the float trip! If you want to rent a boat for this event, Contact Bayou Teche Experience.
Rain Contingencies – The weather is up in the air (Our powers are combining to make the rain go away), but not to worry cause the party will go on rain or shine! The nice folks at St. Bernard School have offered us the use of the covered pavilion and gymnasium, so come out to pass a good time and show your support, especially if it rains. If it looks like only rain in the morning, we may delay the float trip. We will keep you posted on that.
Thanks and see you at the fest! TECHE Project Council
