LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Bishop Noland Episcopal Day School celebrated Louisiana's Bicentennial with history, food and music on Thursday.

The school hosted Louisiana Night, a family event where students were invited to experience all aspects of Louisiana culture.

The event consisted of presentations, music, arts and crafts.

Some of the activities included decorating king cake, making Mardi Gras masks, viewing animal skins, traveling through the history of Louisiana and hearing from KPLC's John Bridges on Louisiana travel. 

All of the students agreed their favorite event was king cake decorating. Aside from the jambalaya and king cake many of them say the event was a way to recognize how important the state was to them.

Sixth grader Andrew Castle said, "I think it's awesome because we are celebrating our state and I think our state is the most important state."

The teachers said the event provided an opportunity for students to have interactive learning about Louisiana culture.
