A FUTURE IN TOURISM
Canoe and kayak paddling is a growing tourism attraction in Louisiana. The 410 Louisiane River Race combines the 275-mile Tour de la Riviere Rouge and the 135-mile Tour du Teche in what is expected to become one of the nation’s premier paddling events. Avoyelles Parish outdoors organizations and tourism advocates are hoping to develop canoe/kayak trails in the parish's scenic waterways to entice more visitors to the area. They hope the Red River paddle races become popular and increase interest in the recreational sport of paddling.
It is the third year for the Red River kayak/canoe races.
