And it was a tremendous success!
See the new pages above for the 2011 show and our premiere 2010 show.
We had 28 boats total, that’s 14 over last year’s entries, so we are growing and we’re having more fun than ever. Our participants this year came from Alabama, Mississippi and of course Louisiana, with all manner of boats from pirogues to cruisers and campers.
Thanks so much to everyone who came to Franklin for the second show. You’ve touched our hearts and given us the signal we needed to continue the Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show in the future.
