A Taste Of Laos

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. I’m having an ok day. School starts tomorrow, so I’m not very happy. But let’s talk about food. This past weekend as I told you I went to the Lao New Year Celebration and it was nice.

I met monks, got blessed, ate plantains, beef jerky and beef on a stick, heard music, visited the temple, and had a lot of fun.

The temple was beautiful. The monk we met explained so much about their habits, why they throw water on the statues, why they play the drum, or why they don’t eat after 12PM. Such an interesting culture.

The beef jerky had a different taste, I didn’t like it but my sister liked it, although she didn’t like the snow ball. The snow balls had different tastes and different things on it. The beef stick had a bit of fat on it but the seasoning was good.

They had chicken feet and other foods to taste, but I got full and didn’t try it. But overall, because it gave me an idea of the Laotian culture, I give the Lao New Year Festival 3.5 Starts. That’s that ladies and gentlemen. Have a great day and don’t forget to go out and try new food and new places.




Lao New Year Celebration

Lafayette, are you looking for something to do tomorrow? Go check out the Lao New Year Festival. This is an annual event that takes place at 7913 Champa Avenue, Broussard, LA 70518.

This event celebrates the beautiful culture of Laos 🇱🇦. They will have a parade, music, dances, a lot of food, and fun things going on. I went today to check the area and here is my advice:

1. Wear boots.

2. Bring cash.

3. Go early or parking will be a bit far and you will have to pay.

I hope to see you because the food smelled good, a lot of kids were playing around, some monks were practicing to play the taiko (a huge drum), ladies were practicing for the pageant, they had floats, snowball machines, and many other fun things.
