Bayou DeSiard Dragon Boat Festival
The boats returned to Bayou DeSiard for another year, in what has quickly become one of Monroe’s signature events. The Bayou DeSiard Dragon Boat Festival was held May 13, and spectators turned out to watch teams compete for the top prize, bragging rights as the top Dragon Boat team of the year.
First National Bank was the title sponsor of the Children’s Coalition of Northeast Louisiana’s main fundraising event for the year. Cold drinks were provided by Choice Brands and Southern Beverage Company, and eats were served by various local food trucks. This year’s event was kicked off by the Draggin’ Tails Family Fun Run, presented by Fleet Feet of Monroe.
