Labor Day Weekend Will Kick Off With Football!

How will you spend your Labor Day Weekend?

Here in Southwest Louisiana Labor Day Weekend Kicks Off With Football!

Louisiana Football


Friday Night September 2nd at 7 PM  two Lake Charles High School Rivals face off when the Barbe Buccaneers host the LaGrange Gators in the A.M. Barbe High School “BUCS” Territory. 

Although Lake Charles, LA could use some rain, I hope the 60% rain forecast doesn’t make this game a wet one.  I am attending the game with a huge group of Barbe High School Alumni as part of my husband’s Class Reunion weekend and don’t want to get wet!  I also have a house under contract with one of the Barbe High School Football Coaches and we have been discussing how the BUCS will fare this year.

Saturday, September 3rd is the day most of us football fanatics have waited for like Christmas…..NCAA College Football!!

Around Lake Charles the streets and stores will be empty while everyone watches the LSU Tigers vs. Oregon Ducks meet up in Dallas in the Big Dallas Cowboys Stadium.

The Saturday Down South SEC Blog makes the prediction of  how the LSU Tigers will beat the Ducks 24-16.


LSU Tailgating


LSU fans will begin their pilgrimage to Dallas on Friday just in time for all day tailgating before kickoff Saturday at 7pm.

Yes I will be watching the LSU game from a big screen set up at my husband’s Saturday night Barbe High School Class Reunion and am expected to be surrounded by screaming LSU fans.  For me my allegiance is to another SEC team!


Labor Day is a day off of work  for most of us and many will take advantage of the weekend for vacation or perhaps gathering at a family cookout.  Hot dogs will be on the grill but most of the grilling will be taking place around the country while tailgating!



Oh and just in case you are house hunting in Lake Charles, LA this Labor Day weekend, I will be the Agent on Duty Sunday September 4th from 4-8pm!  MARILYN BOUDREAUX at your service with Lake Charles Real Estate 337-477-9592
