Lafayette Lanes Closing After 62 Years of Operation.

Posted: Aug 24, 2021 4:04 PM

LAFAYETTE, La. - Lafayette Lanes, the 62-year-old bowling alley located in the South College Shopping Center, will close its doors for good on Thursday August 26, 2021.

Manager Todd Guidry, who himself has been employed at the facility for more than 25 years, tells News15 the lanes' closure is a combination of lagging public interest in bowling made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic.
