Inaugural (soggy) Best of the Bayou is History!
The first-ever Best of the Bayou took over Downtown Houma Sept. 29-30, 2012 despite the soggy skies! Thousands of fun-seekers came out to enjoy the FREE concert featuring 24 bands on two stages. Though the ground was wet, the food was hot and the drinks were cold, and everyone still had some good old-fashioned fun on da' bayou!
