Plaq. Parish Port attends AAPA Convention and Expo

The American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) held its annual Convention and Expo in New Orleans last week briefing attendees on the latest issues affecting ports around the country. A highlight of the event was A Taste of Louisiana where the Louisiana ports served Cajun and Creole delicacies to a crowd of several hundred, while Bruce Daigrepont and his band performed Cajun Music. The Plaquemines Port Harbor and Terminal District was well represented serving bread pudding to the hungry crowd.
