Contraband Days is here again and it's the 59th year of celebrating for SWLA. With two weeks of fabulous activities, it's a great time to party with your family and friends.

Legend has it that Jean LaFitte hid some treasure from his pirate ship here in the Lake Area.  We may not be able to find the treasure he left, but we can find lots of activities to celebrate and make some wonderful treasured memories of our own.

Here's a schedule for today and this weekend.  Go to contrabandday.com for more info ... ARRRRHHHH YOU READY?
