If you're looking for something fun to do this weekend that is affordable for your budget, the city of Scott is hosting their annual Boudin Festival once again this year. The event features music, plenty of boudin along with other food, carnival rides and arts & crafts.

If you love Cajun, Zydeco and other genres of today's music, then you will not be disappointed any of the days of the festival. The festival runs from Friday, April 14 through April 16.

It only costs $5 to enter. Sunday is family day at the festival so it's free admission for children under 12.
