During these times of uncertainty and difficulty for the world due to the devastating impacts of COVID-19, we are encouraging our citizens across the River Region to experience a “Taste of the River Parishes,” by visiting restaurants who have remained open. These small business owners are the economic lifelines of our local communities, and we must do everything we can to provide them with critical financial support during these challenging times.  Whether it’s placing a curb-side order, take-out or grabbing a gift card, please support our small businesses. Please be sure to use the hashtags #TasteTheRiver, #shoplocal and #eatlocal when supporting our cultural bearers. 

The River Parishes are home to some of the most generous and kind-hearted people in the world.

Thank you and stay healthy,

Buddy Boe

Executive Director,

River Parishes Tourist Commission
