Tangipahoa Parish Fair
Wednesday, October 02, 2013 - Sunday, October 06, 2013
Louisiana in October is not exactly littered with igloos, but the weather tends to (thankfully) put an end to the summer swelter. Celebrate, then, with the Tangipahoa Parish Fair—a family-oriented event featuring school exhibits, arts & crafts, food vendors, live entertainment, bull riding and carnival rides. 10 am at 404 Reid Avenue. (985) 517-6029 or tangipahoaparishfair.org.
