That Time Charles Kuralt’s “On The Road” Came to Cajun Country in the Late ’70s
I love nostalgia and remembering days gone by. While scrolling Facebook over the weekend, a video posted in the Lafayette Memories page by Kurt Schoeffler brought us all back to some good times in south Louisiana.
The video is from the popular CBS TV series back in the day called "On The Road". The feature was hosted by the great Charles Kuralt.
In Kuralt's trip to our region, you'll see some familiar and iconic locales including Fred's Lounge in Mamou and the old Cajun Downs bush track in Abbeville.
And then there are some other places, including an old sugar mill, that I'm not sure where they were located. If you can fill in some of the blanks, comment below.
In the meantime, enjoy this stroll down memory lane.
