Dane Thibodeaux of the TECHE Project (left) maintains communication as he pilots the entertainment barge down Bayou Teche to the annual Shake Your Trail Feather Festival, a fund-raiser for efforts to promote the use and protection of the historic waterway. Later in the evening, someone stole the motors off of this boat, which is also used to keep Bayou Teche clean.
