Acadian Roots

Anyone who has been to Alexandria knows it is a "melting pot of cultures from French and Spanish to Native American" and it is also is home to the Coughlin Saunders Performing Arts Center and the Arts Council Visual Arts Culture Literature Music Theater.

The culture is of old southern heritage. The Kent House is one of Louisiana's oldest surviving plantations. One can take a tour Monday through Saturday or by appointment on Sunday. Its location is at "3601 Bayou Rapides Road, in Alexandria Louisiana." You can call 318-487-5998 for more information.

The Mardi Gras au Coeur de la Louisianne or Mardi Gras in the Heart of Central Louisiana is also a well loved and integrated event in Alexandria's culture. Believe it or not the first parade was not held in CENLA until the early 90's! The parade population has went from 10 floats to 22 floats, 14 Mardi Gras krewes and more than 110,000 in attendance.
