About 300 adventurers from all over North America will explore Houma, La., for the first time during the 45th Annual Family Campers and RVers International Retiree Rally in March, Houma Today reported.

Every year, RV campers over the age of 55 congregate in cities throughout the South to bond with each other and partake in local culture. This year, the rally will take place at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center from March 15-21, with activities such as culture and cuisine tours, live music shows and games in the works.

Most of the participants have never visited southeast Louisiana before, Family Campers Executive Director Pam Likins said. The theme this year is “Let the Good Times Roll.”

“People are anxious to go there because it’s new and different,” she added.

To prepare campers, the organization has published articles on the culture and history of the region, particularly its Cajun heritage, and the seafood industry tradition. Likins said many of their members are also excited about the community’s appreciation of veterans in the area.

“There are a lot of veterans in our group who can take advantage of that,” she added.
