Fifth Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show

On Friday April 12th and Saturday April 13th view a collection of antique and newly built watercraft on display, all constructed of wood. Some will be plywood, but many will employ traditional boat buidling methods ranging in style from the Pacific Northwest to the bayous of Cajun Country. The exact number and type of boats on display is being assembled, but will include cypress-framed skiffs and bateaus, elegant yachts from yesteryear, cedar canoes or mahogany runabouts. These are beautiful, classic craft from days gone by, and can be seen on the bayouside near Teche Drive and Adams Street. The show begins at 6 p.m. Friday evening and and concludes at 6 p.m. Sunday.
Anyone interested in entering a boat, please contact:
