Things to do in Cenla

I am sitting here at work, on a very cold day, surrounded by several space and gas heaters and what comes in the mail?  The City of Alexandria’s three month event calendar.  I was considerably cheered when I read the events which will commence from now through March.  My favorite picks (the ones I circled and plan on going to) are as follows:

January 8th – Second Saturday Market at the Museum

February 12th- Second Saturday Market at the Museum

Alexandria Museum of Art.  10am to 1pm. Local art, food, music and children’s activities.  Call 443-3458 for more information

January 30th, Sunday – Tea and Puppets

Coughlin-Saunders Performing Arts Center.  3pm.  Talented Ventriliquist/Comedian Lynn Trefzger will be there and a tea and puppet crafts will conspire in the lobby.  The admission is $5 a person, or $20 for groups.  Call 443-4718 for more information.

March 19, Saturday – Spring Artwalk in the Main Street District of Leesville

March 18-19 – Friday and Saturday – Que’in on the Red

North Levee Park, Fri 5-10pm and Saturday 12-10pm,  Sponsored by the City of Alexandria.  Championship barbecue, music and a carnival.  Admission is $10.  Call 449-5225 for more information.

March 19th, Saturday, Corley’s Miniature Petting Zoo

Well, even though this is bad timing for this event, I am including it because I think it is a cool idea and that Vivian would really dig it.  TREE House and the Martin Foundation is sponsoring a petting zoo for children 1-3pm.  Cost is $4 per person, children under 2 are free.  Call Kara for more information: 619-9394.

Great things are going on in Cenla!  Hope to see you at one of these events.

    • You ought to hold an event, or publish this information in the City’s calendar. Also the APVB asks for submissions for their email list and calendars they send out.

  2. I send it end, it gets lost.
    So, I pick every chance I can.
    It’s like when we got a grant of $10,000 to help fund the Public schools to take field trips to the museum. Sent letters to ALL the schools and Jones, the Super.
    ONE school took the tour. We had to let the money go back because the school system did not act.
    (Or care.)
