While I'm celebrating my wedding anniversary this weekend, here are some fun things for you to do!
Gretna Farmer's Market
Every Saturday from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm under the Market on Huey P. Long Avenue, between 3rd and 4th Streets. Featuring local produce, art, music, crafts and more, it's a great way to start your weekend!
The Make-A-Wish foundation is the recipient of proceeds from a benefit being held at the West Bank Elks Lodge at 900 Monroe Street in Gretna. The party will be rocking from 5 -10 pm on Saturday with food, live auctions, raffles and live music.
Don't forget about children's crafts every Saturday morning at 10:30 in the Children's Wing of the West Bank Regional Library on Manhattan Blvd., a cool start to these hot summer days! Or, you can cool off at the wave pool at Bayou Segnette State Park in Westwego.
With the 4th of July coming up, why not get in the swing of things at the World War II Museum in downtown New Orleans? This Sunday the New Orleans Jazz Vipers will be performing from 1-4 pm during Sunday Swing. Also on hand for this FREE event will be dance coaches from NOLA Swing.
Wednesdays on the Point
A summer music series taking place in Algiers Point, the concerts pick up where Wednesdays in the Square left off. This weeks performance features Amanda Shaw at the Rosetree Glass Studio, located at 446 Vallette Street. The studio will have glass blowing demonstrations, showcasing the talents of our local Algiers artists. Take the ferry, take a walk or drive on over the Point and join in the summer celebrations.
Algiers Reunion Dance
July 12th at Mardi Gras World from 7 pm to midnight. Reconnect with all of your old Algiers friends while you dance the night away at this benefit for Holy Name of Mary sponsored by the Blue Knights of Holy Name Men's Club. The dance will have live music (of course), a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, photo opportunities and local memorabilia for sale. This is absolutely the Algiers event to see and be seen at! Call 450-7460 or 361-0937 for ticket information.
