In the last of a series of promotional events to promote Cameron Parish, Cameron Parish Tourist Commission ended their tour of visits on Saturday, May 14, with a final stop at Myers Landing at the Broussard Camp Pavilion, located riverside on the beautiful Mermentau River near Lake Arthur. Geralyn Myers and Jenny Broussard provided the venue.
Other events on the Tourist Commission’s Parish-wide tour had included: the communities of Cameron, Grand Lake, Johnson Bayou, Holly Beach and then Lowry. Vendors were welcomed at each stop to sell their wares.
Cameron Parish has so much to offer with the Creole Nature Trail; world class hunting, fishing and bird watching, beaches, festivals, prairies and marshes, wildlife sanctuaries, southern hospitality, and its great people.
Seven vendors joined the Cameron Tourist Commission ffering: children’s clothing, farmer’s market items, sublimation items, Tupperware, and cheesecakes.
The Cameron Pilot joined in with free giveaways and a free raffle of a $100 value gift bag, purchased locally from JW Lumber & Hardware in Grand Lake. The winner was Bernadette Miller Hudson.
The Cameron Tourist Commission provided a jambalaya lunch with giveaways for all residents, visitors and vendors. An unexpected arrival of boaters and jeepers participating in a Benefit Poker Run pumped up the volume by making the attendance in excess of 200 persons. Tourism celebrated at its finest; thank you Cameron Parish Tourist Commission and everyone who participated along the tour to make it a great success.
