25th Annual Bonnie and Clyde Festival May 1920 in Gibsland

The Authentic Bonnie & Clyde Festival Committee invites you to join us in Gibsland, La. on Friday night May 19, 2017 and all day Saturday, May 20, 2017 for our 25th festival as we take you back to 1934 with events planned for the Bonnie and Clyde Festival. This year’s festival is being held in memory of L. J. “Boots” Hinton who was the son of Deputy Sheriff Ted Hinton who was a participant in the actual ambush. You will witness five factual reenactments of mock bank robberies and shoot outs in the streets! This festival began in May 1993 because visitors were stopping and inquiring at Gibsland City Hall and the local gas stations for information about Bonnie & Clyde and requesting instructions to the marker at the ambush site.
