| The Thibodaux Farmers Market will close its "spring" season on Saturday July 29. "The market has been a successful endeavor with some 19 vendors participating and has become a community event for Thibodaux," says Joyce Benoit, Market Coordinator. A weekly drawing for a gift basket and a petting zoo were some of the highlights added to this year's market. Plans for the "fall" Market are underway. The market is anticipated to reopen by mid to late September. The market is open on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on LA 1 and Maronge St. in Thibodaux. Persons interested in joining the market are encouraged to contact Joyce Benoit at 448-1474. |
The Civic Center is accessible to walkers from 6:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. The facility is available to everyone during these hours except when the entire building has been rented for a private function or during rehearsal and set-up for a major public event, in which notices are always posted on the main entrances at least three days in advance.
| Don’t forget, the New Orleans Saints will be arriving in Thibodaux on Friday, July 26 for the summer training camp held at NSU stadium. Practices are open to the public. For a list of the Saint’s schedule, visit our website: ci.thibodaux.la.us. |
