As the Grand Marshall of last year's parade, I can tell you this is an event you and the family don't want to miss!  This Friday and Saturday, you'll want to head to Mooringsport for the annual Cypress Festival!

Events are scheduled for the Mooringsport Cypress Festival this Friday, September 11 from 5:00 - 8:00 pm and again from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm this Saturday, September 12 at the Edwin Tuttle Currie Park in Mooringsport, La.

Along with the parade and hundreds of pounds of candy, the festival features live entertainment, delicious food, a raffle, arts and crafts, food eating contests, karaoke, children’s activities and more.

Best of all, it's free to attend.  However, park seating is limited so be sure to bring your foldout chairs and blankets.

Bring the kids, relatives and even the family pet for a family-fun weekend in the heart of the Mooringsport community!

Below is the map of the parade routes for the Children's Parade Friday night and the main parade Saturday morning.
