New Ascension Parish businesses celebrated ribbon-cutting ceremonies with the Ascension Chamber of Commerce over recent days.

Giveaways to mark the grand opening included free chicken salad for one year for one lucky winner.

The Ascension Chamber of Commerce also held a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 13 for the Lawn Doctor.

The business specializes in lawn aeration, fertilization, weed control, trees and shrubs, and fire ants.

Additionally, The Great River Road Museum, adjacent to Houmas House, announced the opening of Dixie Cafe on April 17.
