Krewe of Hercules to take over Houma arena lease

Posted: Updated:
Terrebonne Parish has handed over the lease of the old Houma Airbase arena to the Krewe of Hercules, which will now manage and oversee the building's renovations.

The Courier reports the building is widely known as the livestock arena because it had been leased for the past decade to the Terrebonne Livestock Association, which will continue to use the building for its rodeos and horse shows.

S.P. Larussa, a founding member of Hercules, says the krewe will oversee $60,000 in renovations, including more than $20,000 in parking lot upgrades, which began last weekend.

According to the agreement, the parish will reimburse the krewe for up to $65,000 in repairs to make the facility more attractive to those who would want to rent it for parties and other activities.
