They say nothing in life is free, but that won't be the case Friday afternoon for the Louisiana Outdoor Expo presented by Fire and Safety Specialist!

Free wristbands will be available Friday afternoon between 3:00 and 5:00 at the Cajun Dome box office. Each person who would like a wristband during that time must be present to receive one. They will be good for use on Friday only.

You'll get to peruse the booths and offering of roughly 150 vendors who will be set up with items for hunters and fishermen, things for women and children, and all sorts of unique items in between.

The show continues Friday night until 9:00. The Expo will be open Saturday from 10AM until 8PM, and on Sunday from 10AM until 5PM.

Single-day adult tickets are $12. Tickets for children ages 5 to 11 are $6. If you'd like a three day pass, adults pay $20 and children pay $9. You can get them at the Cajun Dome box office.

With all the vendors, the things they have to offer, plus the fantastic entertainment, the passes are most certainly a bargain, that the way to go!
