Tournoi, which means tournament in French, brings the ancient sport of jousting to the modern world as knights ride horseback at neck breaking speeds attempting to capture small rings suspended from polls along a semi-circular quarter-mile track. First brought to the City of Ville Platte by its founder, Marcellin Garand, this unique event also pays homage to a crop once grown in Evangeline Parish by having each ring represent one of the seven enemies of cotton. There is only one place to experience this one of a kind annual event and that is in the parish seat of Evangeline - Ville Platte.
