Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on the Bayou


It’s no secret that in Houma, we enjoy our festivals and parades. No holiday goes uncelebrated here, including St. Patrick’s Day. Houma’s St. Patty’s Day festivities honor the long-standing history of Irish Americans in Terrebonne Parish and celebrate their many contributions with a Cajun twist. Experience emerald-clad revelers gather along Main Street for a lively parade featuring floats adorned with shamrocks and alligators, celebrate with melodies of Cajun and Irish tunes and indulge in green-tinted favorites!

Whether you’re looking to embrace your Irish roots, or you just want to don your greenest attire and have a bit of fun, we’ve got you covered this St. Patrick’s Day!
