Louisiana is a great place to be celebrating the national 'Kids to Parks Day' on Saturday, May 18. Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser has released a statement about the annual event : 'This is a day to learn about our natural resources, our state's history, and about all of those things that make Louisiana a wonderful place to live. Our state parks and historic sites do a wonderful job of preserving our natural and cultural heritage, for the generations of tomorrow.'

Some of the special events around the state are listed below. And as they say, it's a 'National Day of Outdoor Play', so grab the family and go have some fun this Saturday!
