Your Guide to Labor Day in Bayou Country

Now that school is back in session and sweet summertime is ending, it’s time to celebrate with one final hurrah this Labor Day weekend. So, before pumpkin spice comes out in full force, gather your friends and family and celebrate with us in Louisiana’s Bayou Country!

Here are a few things you won’t want to miss during your visit:


Who doesn’t love a good three-day weekend, one where you can pace yourselves and enjoy several activities and events offered right here in your backyard. Maybe you want to hear live music while shopping for some local market favorites at Market at the Marina. Or perhaps you’re a gamer whose ideal Saturday is attending Louisiana RetroCon, dressing in cosplay while trading and playing video games. If you’re looking for live music, then look no further than CoCo’s Marina for a musical lineup that will have you tappin’ your toes while sippin’ a few. No matter what you’re into, we have it all and more here in Louisiana’s Bayou Country!



Become one with nature as you explore several of our outdoor attractions that are fun for the entire family! Experience the beauty and serene waters of Point-Aux-Chenes by kayak with PAC Kayak Rentals. Get up close and personal with alligators, both large and small, and learn all about the art of alligator hunting at Greenwood Gator Farms and Tours. Trek the one-mile Mandalay Nature Trail, bordered by oak and cypress trees that provide habitat for a wide array of wildlife.



Not having to worry about hitting that alarm clock early Monday morning sounds like a good reason to make the most of this weekend – and for some, that means a good party! Hit up some of our local hot spots like Spigots Brew PubMahoney’s and On the Canal Bar that will wet your whistle while you enjoy a good time with friends.
