Walking the entire length of the boardwalk during Contraband Days? Better do it twice, cause you are gonna miss a few things! Contraband Days is back once again and I have never seen it from the top of the Lake Charles Civic Center...until now!!!

Contraband Days fills so much space behind the Civic Center, it might just surprise you! Take a look at all of the displays, food booths and carnival rides! This is all waiting for you, and you better hurry, cause this is the last weekend to enjoy partying with the pirates, cause it's over this weekend, and then the Mayor takes it all away and we go back to Law & Order in Lake Charles! And after this picture gallery, take a look at the updated scheduale of events and make plans for the weekend. Don't be the person who goes, "Aww, if I had only known, I would have gone to Contraband Days!".
