Acadiana to be Featured on Travel Channel Tonight
Some of our most favorite Louisiana celebrations will be featured on Travel Channel's 'Trip Flip' tonight, June 2. Anyone who loves Mardi Gras, like I do, will want to tune in to see a Buffalo, NY couple come down in a quest for the 'true Louisiana' - beads, bayous, booze - throughout our beautiful state. The network was here in Acadiana, and all around Louisiana during Mardi Gras filming for this episode. According to Travel Channel - host Bert Kreischer 'chooses two people at random for a trip that he plans and organizes, but is a surprise to the tourist.' Well, I can't wait to see how these 2 New Yorkers take to our little statewide celebrations - from the rural Courir de Mardi Gras to the showstopping spectacle of Bourbon Street. I mean, really, if you are going to a surprise destination, wouldn't YOU want to come down here? Mais, yeah, sha! The Travel Channel is on Channel 55 on Cox Communications and Channel 60 on LUS Fiber, and the show will air at 7:30 pm CST.
