New Year’s Eve in Lafayette Louisiana in 2014 – at the heart of Cajun culture

Located along the Vermilion River in south-western Louisiana, Lafayette had a population of over 120,000 at the last census and is the fourth-largest city in the state. It was founded by the French in 1821 and there is still a strong Creole influence in the area. Benefiting from a strong tourism industry, the New Year’s Eve in Lafayette Louisiana in 2014 is bound to be a one-of-a-kind experience.

The heart of Acadiana and the centre of Cajun culture in Louisiana and the United States, Lafayette has many cultural places of interest. The Acadian Memorial and Museum and the Acadian Museum of Erath offer a glimpse of the Cajun mystique and are great places which honour the Acadian heritage. Atchafalaya Experience, North America’s largest river swamp, Begnaud House, offering cultural classrooms about food, music and Mardi Gras are only few locations which draw thousands of tourists every year. The New Year’s Eve in Lafayette Louisiana in 2014 is unique, however, in the eclectic mix of restaurants serving Cajun and Creole cuisine, a dream come true for all food lovers.
