Fall is upon us, which means fun activities and events for the whole family are only a short drive through Lafayette, Louisiana, or a computer screen away. From your friends at Hampton Mitsubishi, here are a few such events to look forward to.
Festivals Acadiens et Créoles — October 9-11
When the celebrated Festivals Acadiens et Créoles takes place this October, it will be a bit different than it usually is. To ensure the safety of all participants, the festival will be virtual this year. For Lafayette residents looking to get a taste of genuine Cajun and Creole culture, the Festivals Acadiens et Créoles is the place to be.
South Louisiana Black Pot Festival & Cookoff — October 30-31
Celebrate Halloween with a Louisiana flair during the South Louisiana Black Pot Festival & Cookoff in Vermillionville. Instead of candy, you can enjoy a wide array of the tastiest Cajun food around, with contests to determine the best example of each signature dish.
Southern Screen — November 12-15
This Louisiana film festival may be operating a bit differently this year, but the team that makes the Southern Screen event possible has assured patrons that the show will go on in some capacity, with specialized seminars and workshops. Movie buffs and fans of unique entertainment will want to check this event out.
Here at Hampton Mitsubishi, we hope that you and your crew find the time to enjoy some of these lovely fall events this year.
Lafayette, Louisiana, is a great place the
whole family can enjoy. Whether you’re a resident or are just visiting, there’s
no shortage of fun family activities in Lafayette, whether you’re looking for a
weekend night out or something educational. From your friends at Hampton
Mitsubishi, here are a few of our local favorites.
Museum of Acadiana
While Lafayette certainly isn’t short of
museums or historic buildings, children learn best by being actively engaged.
The Children’s Museum of Acadiana provides hands-on participation so families
can have fun – and learn – together.
Does your family like to go bowling? Whether
you’re showing off your skills on the venue’s 16 lanes, enjoying live music,
eating in the restaurant, or having a drink with friends, Rock‘n’Bowl de
Lafayette is a unique bowling experience.
The outdoor living history museum of
Vermillionville is a 23-acre village called a “folk life park.” The Vermillionville
Historic Village is populated by artisans and reenactors in authentic costumes
from the 1700s, depicting traditional Acadian, Creole, and Native American cultures.
Lafayette Science Museum
History isn’t the only educational experience
Lafayette has to offer. The local science museum features a digital planetarium
that lets you get a better view of the cosmos, and other exhibits cover everything
from biology to paleontology.
