Culture and Traveler's Guide
There's a lot to see and a lot to enjoy in the friendly lands of South Louisiana. Some of
the most colorful points of interest can be found in
Acadia Parish. 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. There is also a booming rice industry that helps to feed hungry
people all over the world, excellent Cajun cooking and dancing, top-flight motel
accommodations, campgrounds and bed & breakfast establishments. This and much more waits for
you in Acadia Parish.
