Each year since 2000, on the day before Father's Day, the Bicycle Festival in Abita Springs celebrates pedal power and the creative spirit. The fest features a swap meet, vintage and art bikes, and a short parade/ride through Abita around noon.
Admission is free for participants and spectators alike, and no registration is required for paraders.
Food is available on the festival grounds--directly across from Town Hall and near the Abita Mystery House--and within walking distance are Mama D's Pizza and More, Abita Springs Café, Abita Brew Pub, Artigue's Abita Market (grocery/deli) and a sno-ball/ice cream/soda shop.
