Name the New Bridge

Earlier this year the new bridge, giving visitors access to the Mississippi River, was completed. Now an easy walk or golf cart ride is all it takes to enjoy sweeping views of The Great River Road Museum, The Houmas Estate, The Great River Road and The Mighty Mississippi River. But what is a bridge with no name? We are asking for your help in finding a suitable name for this new attraction.

What’s the prize? The winner will receive a one night stay at The Inn at Houmas House with dinner for two in The Carriage House Restaurant.

How will a winner be chosen? Once the contest has closed, the responses will be reviewed by Houmas House staff. A winning name will be chosen. If the winning name has multiple entries with the same name, the first one to submit that name will be deemed the winner.

Rules: No limit on amount of entries per person.

Duration: Contest open from May 1-31, 2020. Winner announced on June 5th via contact information submitted. Please share this with your friends on social media too.

Good Luck!
