         OAK ALLEY PLANTATION BREAKS POST-KATRINA ATTENDANCE RECORD

January 4, 2012-Oak Alley Plantation is excited to announce that it has surpassed its single-day attendance record, post-Hurricane Katrina. Acknowledging Louisiana's steady increase in tourism since Katrina devastated the river region of Louisiana, the staff of Oak Alley Foundation would like to offer a warm 'thank you' to all of its visitors and FaceBook fans. We also could not have done this without the help of our tourism partners. Their devotion to promoting Oak Alley and our great state truly shows. "We are pleased to see that our visitation for 2011 increased by 7.75% over 2010. This is encouraging as we work to meet the challenges still faced from Katrina, the British Petroleum oil spill and not to mention the economy affecting both our domestic and international visitors," according to Debra Mayhew, the plantation's Director of Marketing. "As we look forward to 2012, we are excited about the increase in tourism to the river region in the first month alone thanks to the BCS and Sugar Bowls. We also look forward to the new enhancements to our self guided walking tour of the grounds which should continue to generate a consistent growth in visitation. Our team has worked diligently to provide the best visitor experience by maintaining the historic grounds and buildings of the plantation as well as providing an insight into the history of Oak Alley. Our staff commits to not only providing a quality experience to the plantation but also a memorable visit to Louisiana", continues Mayhew. Thank you for helping us to "Hold fast to that which is good."
