Ladybug Ball

The Ladybug Ball is a family-friendly event with a focus on environmental education for our youngest residents. This annual celebration and market includes educational programs and demonstrations concerning native plants, organic pest control, fruit and vegetable vendors, arts and crafts vendors, plant sales, and lots of kids activities. It is also a fundraiser supporting the South Louisiana Wetlands Discovery Center, a nonprofit, tax exempt organization, that is revolutionizing how we think, teach and learn about Louisiana’s disappearing coast.

This year’s Ladybug Ball will be held at the Wetlands Discovery Center located at 86 Valhi Blvd., Houma next to the Courtyard Marriott on Saturday, April 22, 2023 from 10AM to 2PM! (Rain date is Sunday, April 23, 2023).

The event will feature arts and crafts, food, music, games, face painting, cookie decorating, petting zoo, and more.

Dress as your favorite critter for the costume contest at noon! Registration opens at 10:00AM.

Also, join us at 1:00PM as we release 100,001 ladybugs!
