Our #1 pick for this weekend is Festivals Acadiens et Creoles, October 12-14 at Girard Park. Festivals Acadiens will celebrate three different aspects of the Cajun & Créole cultures: music, food and art - and there will plenty of each to enjoy all weekend!

If you're in the mood for music of a different sort, ZZ Top is at Parragon Casino Resort and Brad Paisley, The Band Perry, and Scotty McCreery are playing the New Orleans Arena on Saturday night. If comedy's what you're looking for, don't miss Bill Cosby at the River Center on Sunday afternoon and Al Green plays L'Auberge Casino Baton Rouge Sunday night.
