The Third Bayou Teche Wooden Boat Show is in April. The show starts Friday at 6 p.m. and continues through Sunday. We've progressed from a single-day show, to two days and now for the full weekend. The show is held in conjunction with the Bayou Teche Black Bear and Birding festival along Parc sur la Teche in the historic district of downtown Franklin.
