atchafalaya basin festival

The 7th annual Atchafalaya Basin Festival is a fund raising project for Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Henderson, and Sacred Heart of Jesus Chapel in Butte La Rose, and this year is going to be held on Saturday, November 8th. The festival celebrates the unique Cajun heritage and the sportsman’s paradise of the Atchafalaya Basin, which we love so much!
