Pumpkin … love it or hate it … matters not when it comes to decorating!

And what better places to purchase fall décor than the artisan shops, flea markets, local nurseries, gift shops, and boutiques of Avoyelles! Selections are varied and plentiful since pumpkins are not just orange anymore.

Several locations throughout Avoyelles carry great offerings of “pumpkin something,” so make a day of it and stop by our many gift shops and retail opportunities.

Plan to enjoy a great lunch, and then more shopping everywhere in Avoyelles … and don’t forget dessert paired with a local brew.

DID YOU KNOW? … Avoyelles Parish, in Central Louisiana, takes its name from Avoyels Indians, and we commemorate our Native American as well as French Creole heritage. The abundant wildlife and many waterways make this a hunting, fishing and birdwatching paradise, year-round. A thriving agriculture industry beckons foodie travelers for authentic Louisiana cuisine. Casino action boasts a different kind of wildlife, and a variety of accommodations make for a comfortable stay as you explore. LEARN MORE:
