There's the International Rice Festival in Crowley, the Frog Festival in Rayne, the Buggy Festival in Church Point, and the new Germanfest in Roberts Cove as well as the unique Mardi Gras celebration in Church Point and Iota. The elegant architecture of Crowley's huge historic district, the charm of the murals in Rayne, the amazing European-style castle in Mermentau, the Rice Museum and Blue Rose Museum in Crowley, and the tiny pilgrim's chapel in the German settlement called Roberts Cove are fascinating to visit.
