The memorial day holiday is on it's way this weekend.  This is a three day weekend for most people as they have off Saturday thru Monday.

With a beautiful weather forecast on tap, parties, BBQ's and get togethers will be going on all over Southwest Louisiana.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is participating in the national Click it or Ticket campaign and will be holding a seat belt checkpoint this Saturday.

The checkpoint will be this Saturday, May 25th somewhere in Calcasieu Parish.  Deputies will be looking for folks not wearing their seat belts plus for impaired drivers.

So be safe this Memorial Day weekend and buckle up.
