Event description
The TECHE Project’s full-blown Shake Your Trail Feather Festival is transitioning to a Paddle Parade this year.

About this Event

Paddle with us from Poche's Meat Market in Poche Bridge to Parc des Ponts in Breaux Bridge on Saturday, October 17. This year, the "Paddle to the Party" boat parade will become the "Paddle is the Party!" The floating paddle parade will start at 10 a.m. (register at Poche's at 9:30), and band Amis du Teche will escort via barge to set the mood as folks float for a 2-hour paddle down beautiful Bayou Teche. When the parade ends at the park in Breaux Bridge, there will be food available and a 1 p.m. raffle of a $200 gift certificate from Pack and Paddle. Please note that drinks will be BYOB due to COVID-19.

To keep the crowd limited to safe numbers, we are asking that folks register in advance. Registration includes your ticket to the parade and our annual event pin that has this year's theme bird wearing a mask to mark the times. For safety, we will be requiring masks when not paddling. We plan to have a Best Bird Mask Contest, so come with your beaks on! We also ask that the parade be limited to non-motorized watercraft.

There is a pre-paddle shuttle available for $5 that leaves from the Breaux Bridge boat launch at 9 a.m. Find more info at http://www.techeproject.org/events/shake-your-trail-feather/. Boat rental is available from Bayou Teche Experience and The Backpacker.

This event is a fundraiser for The TECHE Project, and proceeds go toward building the Bayou Teche National Paddle Trail, which will provide access docks and other amenities for paddlers in the 13 towns along Bayou Teche. This fall, we will have 11 paddle trail docks and accompanying informational kiosks installed on the bayou.
