DescriptionLast November, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the release of the classic biker movie Easy Rider at the Poydras building in New Roads. The funds raised during that event enabled us to purchase a marker to be placed at the former site of Melancons Cafe, the Morganza restaurant used in the movie. To celebrate the installation of this marker as well as continue in the commemoration and preservation of historic landmarks in Pointe Coupee Parish, we are having a follow-up event November 13th in Morganza, Louisiana.

We will start with a marker installation ceremony followed by a poker run in order to raise funds for the restoration and preservation of the historic one-room jail in Morganza. The route will take riders past two locations from Easy Rider, the cafe in Morganza and the final scene filmed just outside of Krotz Springs. Well end our ride back at The Bears Den for plenty of music and food to end our celebration.
