The Buccaneers will be leaving the City of Lake Charles this Sunday and returning the command to Mayor Randy Roach thus ending Contraband Days 2013. Even though they made us walk the plank when they took over the city, I don't think they will walk the plank when the mayor takes over. Don't seem fair. But anyway there's still a big weekend of Contraband Days left and it's full of fun with great food and entertainment. Check out this weekend's schedule.
