Free Festivals, Markets & Rallies Fill Out The Weekend

Saints Season starts this Sunday! If you haven’t snagged your Kamara jersey yet, go ahead and grab an official one and hit up Gleason Gras. We know the real deal is pricey but you can offset all that by not spending a dime on your entertainment this weekend. Outside of watching the Saints in your home, there are plenty of ways to stay busy while giving your checking account a rest.

It can’t all be a party. Take some time in your weekend to do what’s right and make a little noise for some fellow New Orleanians who need it. Gordon Plaza residents have been living on top of a toxic landfill for decades and they’re hoping to tell the world about what they’re going through.

When: Saturday, September 8, 10 a.m.
Where: 3301 Press St.
