De Quincy Railroad Museum 400 Lake Charles Ave DeQuincy, LA 70633
April 10, 2014 - April 12, 2014 - CONFIRMED!
From Louisiana Railroad Days Festival Website:
The festival is held on the second weekend in April each year at the Railroad Museum Park. Many businesses, clubs, churches and schools participate. The festival has always consisted of food booths, crafts, carnival rides, free entertainment and a parade. Thursday, the first day of the festival starts with the K9 Caboose Pageant followed by the Railroad Days Pageant. On Friday, a bicycle parade is held for the children followed by the main parade. The evening hours are devoted to Gospel music. Various churches participate in this program. The festival grounds open early Saturday morning beginning with the Annual 5k Cannonball Run and continue until midnight. During these hours there are many things such as the Carnival Rides, Arts and Crafts, and various entertainments on both the main and childrens stage. One of the last things of the night is a popular country and western entertainer. During all three days there are food booths, games and carnival rides available.
The Louisiana Railroad Days Festival was prided itself in being a free festival that is family oriented and allows no alcohol. The city of DeQuincy and surrounding areas have been blessed by the festival each year. I would conclude that since Railroads have been a very important part of DeQuincy, that it is the perfect place to have the Louisiana Railroad Days Festival.
