Opening Ceremonies Details:
Each year Games of Acadiana begins with Opening Ceremonies at 10:00am in the Cajundome.
All cancer survivors are invited to take a short victory walk from the back of the Cajundome to the front while the crowd cheers. (Survivors should register beginning at 9:00am in Cajundome lobby to participate in short walk). After a guest artist performs the national anthem, a brief prayer and announcement of honorees, the games begin!
*Survivors can check in from 9:00am - 1:00pm to receive a survivor t-shirt (sizes first come, first served). Survivors should be there by 9:45am to participate in short Survivor Walk during Opening Ceremonies.
