Fire and Water Rural Arts Celebration is a one day event that showcases creative talent produced primarily in Acadiana. Born following the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Fire and Water featured signature floating fires and the work of visual artists with only a sampling of other artistic disciplines; however, over the last several years the event has expanded to become more of a celebration featuring a multitude of artists, performers and cultural workers in a variety of disciplines and genres. Watch cooking demos and feature films, hear live music, listen to poetry and shop local art vendors. Unique French Louisiana celebration.
Since the area is designated a Louisiana Cultural District, all original art is sold free of sales tax. A 5:30 p.m. Poppa Joe Christmas Parade will pass through the downtown. At 8:30 p.m. a fire dancer leads a peace march honoring veterans to Bayou Warehouse where the traditional fire is set ablaze upon Bayou Fusilier.
Food, beverages, wine and beer will be available for purchase. All activities are open to the public. A printable schedule and more information can be found at www.nunucollective.org. Le Feu et L'Eau is held the first Saturday in December every year.
