We all know how much we love Vermilionville and our Cajun culture. Now it's time to help our friends at Vermilionville showcase it to the world. Vermilionville is in the running for "Best Louisiana Attraction" and seriously need your help to win it.
Advertising is everywhere we turn. What we don't always realize is that certain commercials stick in our memories for a lifetime. Take a look at this collection of local and national TV commercials that aired on KATC in 1983. Do you remember any of these?
Summertime in Louisiana always exciting. The sunny days get us outside to enjoy all the fantastic things we love like beaches, fishing, backyard BBQ s and countless festivals. With the kids out of school and many of us taking vacation time off from work, our chances of happening upon a poisonous snake or spider increases greatly. We've got quite a few things here in Louisiana that can't wait to kill us this summer. OK, not really, but sort of. Here are "7 Of The Most Dangerous Things In Louisiana" to be on the lookout for this summer.
All day yesterday, the Cajundome was packed with High School after High School holding their 2017 Graduation Ceremonies. The graduating class from Lafayette High School took the opportunity to join in on the tradition of "Tuba Fanfare" one final time, and it was great.
Garth Brooks is playing the Cajundome for what will be five incredible nights June 23rd. 24th, 25th, 30th and July 1st.

High School Seniors are graduating all over Acadiana right now, and many are uncertain what the future of their education holds regarding Louisiana's TOPS program. Today, Louisiana's Education Committee will meet to discuss raising the GPA requirement for the program.
We all like to think that we posses above average intelligence. Well, most people but me. I've given in to the fact that I'll never be the sharpest tool in the shed. Maybe you actually know your IQ, but like me, most folks have never taken an actual, legitimate IQ test. This video claims it's got it all boiled down these "10 Signs That You Are Highly Intelligent". Let's check it out.
Acadiana hasn't seen a show as huge as the upcoming Garth Brooks World Tour in, well 25 years. This will be a night we will all remember for a lifetime.

CAJUNDOME has released some great information and tips to keep you from getting ripped off.
As the weather heats up, we'll all be planning trips to water parks and beaches around Louisiana.

They've just released information warning the public that high levels of bacteria have been found at three Louisiana beaches.
Even with all of the great things there are to do in Lafayette and Acadiana, we can still get bored. What's a bored Cajun to do? Don't sweat it, we've got you covered with our "Wheel Of Dares" Lafayette edition!
Look, we all do it to some degree. We get mad at someone for cutting us off in traffic, speeding, whatever. Everyone on the road but us is insane, right? However, nothing good will ever come from letting our anger get the best of us. Let this video be an important reminder of how quickly things can turn bad and not go the way we think they will.
