Football Preview 2012

Acadiana LifeStyle welcomes for a second year KATC TV3 Sports Director Travis Webb with his Football Preview.

I’m With The Band

Imagine Mardi Gras parades without marching bands. Absurd! How about Friday night football half-times without the shows? Ridiculous! School bands are an integral part of parades, sports events, fairs and festivals in south Louisiana. There’s an undeniable excitement in the air as band members lift their instruments to perform their latest showpiece while color guards spin their flags.

Two New Faces

Personnel changes at the top position for two area football teams have been firmed up and the proof will be in the pudding. Head Football Coach Ananias Johnson will walk the sidelines at Jeanerette Senior High this fall, while Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Ryan Antoine will be in charge of gridiron work for the Westgate Tigers in New Iberia.

Celebrate The Good Life

Acadiana and surrounding areas ensure we are never short on fall festivals. With the promise of the upcoming cooler weather and good times, gather up family and friends and head on out to one or more of these festivals for some live music, scrumptious cuisine, and a festive time.

Café Jefferson-Restaurant Review

For great authentic Cajun cuisine with a view that cannot be matched, visit Café Jefferson at Rip Van Winkle Gardens in New Iberia. The restaurant is situated in a grove of a dozen ancient live oak trees, offering a breathtaking view of the gardens and Lake Peigneur.

A Race To The Finish

Breaux Bridge native Ray Pellerin, 72, loves boats. From a pirogue to a canoe to an 85-foot houseboat, he’s had them all. In his college days Ray and his roommate at LSU used to race on the university lakes against the other fraternities, so it’s always been in his blood.

Festival Season Is Here!

Fall brings the promise of cooler weather and a full range of festivals for the entire family to enjoy. Head on out this fall to one of the area’s many festivals for the promise of parades, good music and good food. Acadiana LifeStyle has compiled a list of some of the area’s festivals to ensure you don’t miss out on passing a good time.

Are You Evangeline's Cousin?

By focusing on the history of Acadians who settled in this area of Louisiana, Tom Swatloski has been able to assemble information that will help individuals trace their family tree back to biblical times.
