Goodbye 2023. Hello, 2024!
As we look back at 2023, we are filled with gratitude and pride for what we’ve achieved. It’s been a year that not only rebounded from past challenges like Hurricane Ida but also set new benchmarks for what we can accomplish as a premier tourism destination. Our calendar was packed with successful events and festivals, celebrating the unique spirit and traditions of the Bayou region. We move forward with great optimism, ready to welcome the future and continue to offer a world-class experience to all who visit Louisiana’s Bayou Country.
Before we close the book on 2023, let us reflect on some of the inspiring chapters, noteworthy causes and defining moments of the last year.
