Jeanerette Bicentennial Museum 40th Anniversary Celebration
Jeanerette Museum Celebrates 40 Years with Musical Entertainment
The Jeanerette Museum’s celebration of 40 years will feature entertainment by the Five O’Clock Shadows band at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 10. The Five O’Clock Shadows organized at an event held at the museum during its Big Jam celebrating music history over seven years ago. Since that time the Five O’Clock Shadows has played at many local events. The group is dedicated to preserving and playing the best of the 50's and 60's Rock 'n' Roll music, as well as Swamp Pop, standard blues and country favorites. The Jeanerette Bicentennial Museum was formed as part of a celebration during the bicentennial year of the United States in 1976. A committee of dedicated citizens joined together with the goal of providing a lasting way to celebrate the history of the community. Through those early beginnings, the Jeanerette Museum was formed to preserve the culture and heritage of Jeanerette and the surrounding areas. Today the Jeanerette Museum is visited by people from all over the world who are eager to learn more about the Acadiana communities and the industries that have helped sustain them. The museum offers public tours, history talks, traveling exhibits and a host of other programs in its efforts to provide education on its history while preserving its past. The 40th year celebration is a family friendly event open to the public free of charge. This will be an outdoor event on the grounds of the museum located at 500 E. Main Street, Jeanerette.
