The town of Lafitte or Jean Lafitte as it is commonly known runs along Bayou Barataria. Many people of the area make a living from the water and marshlands here. Long ago, Lafitte was a hideaway for pirates. Now, it is a great place to sample local seafood, watch the trawl boats, dance to Cajun music, in short - have a wonderful time. Fishing and boat tours are available all during the year, with delicious food ready for you at many fine restaurants.
Festivities occur all during the year, but particularly watch for the Oyster Fest in January, the Blessing of the Fleet in April, the Seafood Festival in August and the Bayou Christmas Festival in December.
