The official start of spring is right around the corner (Saturday, March 20 this year) and after the harsh winter weather that we had during the last couple of weeks, we are looking to get outside for some fun activities. Louisiana is not used to having cold temperatures holding us down!

Our wonderful Louisiana Department of Tourism always has great resources for whatever it is you want to experience in our state, and they have a fun list of things going on this weekend. I've added in a few of my own favorites as well, so get out and enjoy yourself this weekend, fellow Louisianians.
