BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – After being closed for over a year, Blue Bayou has announced that the water park will reopen in May.

But there are hundreds of positions that need to be filled in the meantime.

Anyone over the age of 15 can apply for the following positions:

  • Lifeguard
  • Food Service
  • Admissions
  • First Aid

All previously purchased tickets and season passes from 2020 will be honored in 2021.
