This is an all day event.
We invite you to the Fifth Annual Bayou Teche Bear Festival, April 17th - 18th, 2009, in beautiful downtown Franklin. Franklin, located in the heart of St. Mary Parish on historic Bayou Teche, is noted for its beautiful antebellum homes, quaint bed and breakfasts, and majestic live oaks. The city is surrounded by expansive cypress tupelo swamps, the unique and expansive Atchafalaya Basin , and in the heart of the nation's “energy coast,” where the infrastructure for the production and transport of much of the oil and gas that is distributed to the rest of the United States can be found. The area has a rich natural heritage, with a bountiful list of species readily available for the wildlife fancier. Among those is the Louisiana black bear ( Ursus americanus luteolus ).
