Renowned Chef John Folse talks to Hometown Production in his Donaldsonville home in March and will be featured in the Louisiana Main Street Road Show.

The Historic District of Donaldsonville will be featured in the upcoming Louisiana Main Street Road Show announced by the Ascension Parish Tourism Commission in a partnership with Hometown Productions.

The show is scheduled to air May 5-9 during National Tourism Awareness Week. The show will be available on Louisiana News Magazine and it will air locally Monday - Friday 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. on EATEL channel 4 and 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on WBTR-TV on Cox cable channel 19 and EATEL channel 144. It will also air statewide on 28 channels with 4.3 million potential viewers across 37 parishes.

"Since the focus of this show is on historic main streets across Louisiana, we thought this would be a great opportunity to showcase historic Donaldsonville's history, different shops, restaurants, and attractions connected with the Main Street,” Tracy Browning said, Director of Ascension Parish Tourism Commission.

Donaldsonville was established in the early 1800's and is known today as the "Gateway to Cajun and Plantation Country" because of its rich heritage and the numerous plantations along the Mississippi River and Bayou Lafourche. Some things visitors can enjoy are the historic district, River Road African American Museum, Historic Fort Butler Commemorative Site, Ascension of our Lord Church, Louisiana Square Park, the Riverwalk and many other hidden gems.

Ascension Parish is more than just grand plantations along the historic river road- it's your CONNECTION to great Louisiana food, exciting festivals and events, an outdoor sporting paradise, fantastic shopping, and oh, so much more.
