The first annual Shake Your Trail Feather
concert event in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, is on Saturday October 20, 2012. This annual concert will help raise funds to create projects and maintain facilities along the new Bayou Teche Paddle Trail. The event is sponsored through the collaboration of Christine Balfa and the TECHE Project, a non-profit group working to raise awareness of the environmental, cultural, historical, and recreational values of Bayou Teche.
Shake Your Trail Feather will begin at Noon on Saturday, October 20th and is a free concert. Official festival pins are available.
Concert performances include: David Egan and 20 Years of Trouble, Roddie Romero and the Hub-City All Stars, and BonSoir, Catin. Pack and Paddle is providing a kayak for raffle and you must be present to win. Bayou Teche Brewing will make samples of their craft brew available.
Bayou Teche Experience will host a low-cost kayak trip with free shuttle service (kayak included) from Poche Bridge to Breaux Bridge at 9:00am which is scheduled to arrive in Breaux Bridge at noon. Bayou Teche Experience is also providing free kayak lessons for kids from 1pm to 3pm onsite. There are many more activities, too numerous to mention.
St. Martin Parish Tourism and the City of Breaux Bridge have partnered with the TECHE Project to make this concert possible.
Several bed and breakfasts are located in Breaux Bridge. Consider staying at Maison Des Amis
which is listed on the National Registry of Historic Homes. This 1860 Creole/Caribbean residence is one of the oldest homes in town and overlooks legendary Bayou Teche. The abandoned and boarded up home was bought and restored in the mid-1990’s. Staying at this bed and breakfast will give you the chance to experience breakfast at the famous Café Des Amis.
