Port Allen sits on the west bank of the Mississippi River between Interstate 10 and US Highway 190 in southern Louisiana. About 5,200 people call it home, and treasure it for its easy access to the city coupled with small-town charm. The town’s Mississippi Riverfront Development includes a pedestrian promenade with special architectural paving, viewing benches, and ornamental street lighting. Baton Rouge is just across the river from Port Allen, and from 1820 to 1968, a ferry operated between the two communities. In contrast to the town’s small size, the Port Allen Lock on the river plays a major role in international commerce, giving barges and other vessels access to the Intracoastal Waterway that shortens water travel to the Gulf of Mexico by 120 miles. Several manufacturing and service distribution centers are located in Port Allen’s industrial park, Westport. The town hosts several annual events including the Sugar Fest, Kite Fest, Bon Fest and annual Mardi Gras and Veteran’s Day parades.
