Come enjoy all-you-can-eat pastalaya, live music, craft vendors, carnival-style games for kids, and more. The entry fee is $5 per person, and free for children 5 and under.
Individuals can also sign up their child for free swimming and CPR lessons and/or the Life Jacket 4 Life program. Come early as we only have a limited number of coast guard approved life jackets available at this time.
Children’s Water Safety Awareness is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Houma, LA that promotes water safety to all in the community. Directly representing four families from this area that have lost a loved one to a drowning incident, they have sponsored free swimming lessons to over 100 children in the Houma/Thibodaux area, as well as hosted free CPR lessons for over 50 parents and family members. In 2018, the Life Jacket 4 Life program was launched where parents can purchase a discounted life jacket and as their child outgrows it, they can swap it out for the next size at no additional cost. If you or your company would like to get involved or would like to donate, call Joey Vining at 985-860-6625 or e-mail email@example.com.
