Carriages, culture and more at ‘14’s stroll event

STAFF REPORT @dvillechief
Carriage rides have been the center of the avenue stroll event, however other attractions are creating traditions.

The 2014 Avenue Evening Stroll brought out lots of culture and a large crowd to enjoy almost anything from a carriage ride to live concerts. With rain predicted on the forecast, some thought the event wouldn’t last but in South Louisiana – au contraire – as the clouds filled heavy but held off until the event’s near-five hour schedule would be completed.

Before the event kicked off, Mainstreet Donaldsonville and Downtown Development Executive Director posted on Facebook, “As you shop, eat, dance and laugh, please remember what a special place Donaldsonville is to all of us.”

 From the looks of it, that’s what the folks did.

With help from merchants, schools and other volunteers the 2014 stroll event got reviews of nothing but positive success.
