      Vigilantes on the Bayou

      The program Vigilantes on the Bayou depicts a violent era in the history of South Louisiana, in which American, Creole, and Acadian landowners struggled against each other over ownership and usage of the land bordering the Bayou Teche, and other regions of what is now known as Acadiana. Re-enactors portraying Vigilantes and Anti-Vigilantes will set up mock campsites, engage in living history enactments, civilian and military demonstrations, and the firing of black powder weapons and cannons. The event will culminate in two mock battles at 11am and 1pm between the two opposing forces, followed by a public dialogue discussing this important period in South Louisiana culture. THis event is subject to weather conditions. For more information, please call toll free 888.677.2900 or 337.394.3754 locally .
