There’s nothing better than fall weather in Baton Rouge. These cloudless 70 degree days have left us pining for the outdoors. Luckily, there are plenty of things to do in Baton Rouge for you to soak in some sunshine. Here’s a few things going on this weekend:

Red Stick Farmer’s Market – Free to attend, Every Saturday 8 AM – Noon
The downtown farmer’s market always has a great selection of fall gourds to decorate your doorstep. Pick up an heirloom pumpkin, or some fresh pickin’s to stock the pantry.

Atchafalaya Basin Canoe Trip – $30 (includes equipment and canoe rental), Sat. Oct. 9, 9 AM
Naturalist, landscape architect, long-time Atchafalaya visitor Charlie Fryling will lead several canoe trips into his favorite parts of the Basin during Experience Atchafalaya Days in October. To find out more or to register online, go to the link above or call 225-366-2974.

Live Music: Honey Island Swamp Band @ Chelsea’s Cafe – Sat. Oct. 9, 10:30 PM
Around our office, the favorite hangout spot is under the Perkin’s Road overpass at Chelsea’s. (Our top pick is the chicken fried chicken!) Their patio is a great place for catching up with friends. Saturday night will feature live music from Honey Island Swamp Band but for those with an early curfew we still recommend stopping by for lunch or dinner. Sorry, they are closed on Sundays.
