Today is Labor day which means that the late legendary Zydeco music artist Boozoo Chavis Labor Festival will be held today in Lake Charles.

The festival is usually held on Dog Hill which was the Chavis family land but has now moved to the Lake Charles Civic Center.

Our rich musical heritage continues to live on with Boozoo's Labor Day Festival. A day of great food and Zydeco, the entire family is invited to come out and celebrate the festival's 28th year in grand style. Fill up on crawfish etouffee, red beans and rice with sausage and BBQ sandwiches. Truly a family affair, enjoy the sounds of local Zydeco favorites. Doors open at 10 a.m., with the bands beginning at 11 a.m. Admission is $12 and $2 for kids 10 and under. The festival has relocated this year to the Lake Charles Civic Center.

Have a fun and safe Labor day everyone!
