This week is round two of our TGIF Weekend Activities posts. Baton Rouge’s beautiful fall weather is holding steady so let’s get out and enjoy it! Here are some events going on this weekend:

LSU vs McNeese @ LSU – tickets required for the game (free to tailgate), Saturday Oct. 16., 7 PM
Whether you have tickets to the game or you just plan on tailgating with some friends, the place to be this Saturday is under the Oak trees at LSU. Kids will love sliding down the Indian Mounds or stopping by Mike the Tiger’s cage to catch a glimpse of him splashing in his pool. Parking and traffic may be a little hectic, so make sure to get out early to avoid the rush.

Oak Alley Fall Arts & Crafts Festival @ Oak Alley Plantation – $5 ($2 for kids 12 and under) Saturday Oct. 16., 9 AM-5 PM, Sunday Oct. 17 9 AM-4 PM
More than 160 artists and craft vendors from throughout the country will be on hand featuring original and handmade creations such as jewelry, furniture, clothing, home accessories, paintings and prints, pottery, wooden crafts, toys and much more! Bring the kids out for pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting as well as Bungy jumpin’! Click the link for directions and more information.

Sundays in the Park w/ Tizer featuring Karen Briggs @ The Shaw Center Downtown – free, Sunday Oct. 17, noon – 3 PM
Sundays in the Park is a great event put on at the Shaw Center Downtown. The free event features music from local artists and cuisine from the city’s finest. It may be a little chilly to play in the fountains but it still guarantees a good time for all ages.

And as always, nothing is better than looking at homes for sale when the sun is shining. Give us a call to set up an appointment! 225-368-3237
