Most importantly, be safe, drink responsibly, and have fun. Other than that, we have a few housekeeping rules:
- NO Weapons of any kind (Seriously)
- NO Drugs (The City’s laws and State’s laws regarding marijuana are still conflicting. Be smart.)
- NO Outside Food or Drink (Our vendors are important partners)
- NO Coolers, Chests, Packs, or Sacks (You get the picture)
- NO Parking on the Grass (You will be towed)
- NO Tents, Large Canvasses, or Tarps (They block the view and take up space)
- DON’T Trash Bayou Saint John (Respect the natural resources, they bite!)
- Children Under 16 must be accompanied by an adult
Please respect our neighbors and neighboring businesses by parking in designated areas. Be conscious of the bayou. Keep your kids close by.
Is it safe to swim in the bayou?
Well, why don’t you ask our little friend that was spotted near the Dumaine bridge on April 19, 2016 (photo courtesy of our friend and sponsor from Studio 3 Inc., Jonathan Bertuccelli). Other than the occasional alligator, Bayou St. John has sadly taken on many sunken vehicles and other sharp, dangerous debris. If that’s not enough to keep you out of the water, we can let our friend David tell you about the gnarly staph infection boils he developed after a plunge. In other words, no it’s not safe to swim in the bayou, and we highly discourage getting in the water.
