How many of us are guilty of saying, "There's nothing to do?" I've done it plenty of times only to find out later that I missed an event I really wanted to attend.  We decided it would be a good idea to provide a brief look at some of the events coming up this weekend. With a rather high chance of rain this weekend, some of these events may be forced to make some adjustments, but, as it stands right now, here are 6 things to do:


1. Gallery Promenade-

arts and humanities

Arts and Humanities Council of Southwest Louisiana’s annual gallery and museum showcase, will take place on Friday, September 28th, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and it celebrates the art space as both a local business and a cultural force. Gallery Promenade is designed to give residents and visitors of Southwest Louisiana an evening in the fall when galleries, art venues, and museums across the Lake Area work in a coordinated effort to open their doors and take part in an extensive promenade of current exhibits and local art.
