Cemetery Tours & Historical Reenactments
October 19 - October 20
Spend some time with voices from the past at the St. Landry Catholic Church Cemetery Tours & Historical Reenactments. Some are happy and some are sad, but each will leave you wanting to know more. In its 16th year, tour reenactors will transport you back in time focusing on a chosen time period in Opelousas’ history.
All proceeds from the cemetery tours fund the Cemetery Historical Restoration Project. The tours began in 2003 and, to date, 30 plus gravesites have been restored. Additionally, signage has been added.
Tours are available October 12, 13, 19, and 20. Saturday tours take place at 6pm, 7pm, and 8pm, while Sunday tours are at 2pm and 3pm. Handicapped accessible tours will be available the first weekend. Call the organizer for more details. Also, bus groups are welcome!
