A springtime bouquet of floral splendor since the 1930's, the Lafayette Azalea Trail is a winding drive through historic districts, grand boulevards and streets for approximately 20 miles of the city's urban core.  Mid-century, it was reported that over 40,000 visitors drove the trail each year!  The Fuchsia Pink Formosa was christened "The General Lafayette" city flower in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette.

In 2015, Scenic Lafayette, selected as its inaugural project, the revitaliz‚Äčation of the historic trail. The next year the Azalea Society of America certified Lafayette, Louisiana as an Official Azalea City; one of only 15 in the USA. February 23rd was declared the official opening day of bloom season. Our cultural attraction is a display of such breathtaking floral color and beauty that it cannot be described in words.
