Petit Tour du Teche
Kayak races for kids Saturday, Aug. 5
Petit Tour du Teche, youth races in Bayou Teche, will be held at Parc des Ponts de Pont Breaux on Saturday, Aug. 5.
Ranging from 250 yards to a mile in length, the races are staged around buoys so that the racers are within view of the park at all times. There are entrances to the park on Bridge Street next to St. Bernard School and on Main Street next to Breaux Bridge Junior High. On-site registration begins at 7 a.m., safety check at 8 a.m., and the first race at 9 a.m.
Registration costs $10 and includes a T-shirt and lunch. Boats and paddles provided in needed, but participants must supply their own Coast Guard-approved PFDs. PFDs must be worn when in the boats.
The registration fee allows each paddler to compete in all races in the appropriate age division.
