Lafayette's 2017 Lantern Parade

  • Parc International Downtown Lafayette (map)

Theatre Acadie and the American Legion have teamed up with Downtown Alive! on November 10 to celebrate St. Martin's Day! 

We will celebrate by holding a Lantern Parade in Parc International at 6:00. Children are invited into the DTA Kids! area (by the Children's Museum of Acadiana) to build lanterns with Veterans from the American Legion. 

This is also Veterans Day (St. Martin of Tours is the patron Saint of Veterans)! We will be raising money for the American Legion and celebrating Veterans at the DTA!

We are taking nominations now for a Living Veteran to be the Grand Marshal of Lafayette's 2017 Lantern Parade!
