Entertainment and Events
At 9 Calle and 4 Avenida, a few blocks east of the parque, is the local soccer stadium, home to Platense, a sometimes competitive first-division team. Tickets are always available for the weekend games, selling for US$4–5. For a game schedule, call the club at 504/665-6242.
Should you have a desire to consort with the local riffraff, there are plenty of pool halls around town. They offer beers and pool until midnight or later daily.
The city’s annual festival day is August 15.
