  • Lil Wayne will return home this Saturday to host his much-anticipated one-day music festival, Lil Weezyana Fest, in Champions Square. The event will kick off at 3 p.m. and go all day and into the night, featuring performances from artists Moneybagg Yo, BabyFace Ray, and of course, Louisiana’s very own Lil Wayne.
  • Saturday night, inside the Smoothie King Center, country superstar Luke Bryan makes his way to the Big Easy for a special show. Expect to hear classic hits like “Crash My Party” and “Kick the Dust Up”! Showtime is set for 7 pm, so act fast to get a good seat!
  • Grab your bathing suit, running shoes, and biking shorts: this Sunday, LA TRAIL will be hosting its CajunMan Triathlon & Duathlon in Lafayette. The race is meant to be the ultimate test of strength and endurance, but the rest of us can have just as much fun at the post-race party at Café 20.3 with cold beer and live Cajun music!
