Look for New Events At the 2013 Contraband Days

New logo! (Parker Brand Creative)

The 56th annual Contraband Days will kick off Tuesday, April 30, and will include a new event called Spike ’n’ Splash.

The two-day event combines the professional Extreme Volleyball Professionals Tour and the Hydro-Turf Watercross National Tour!

This will be the tour’s first stop of the 2013 season, and it will be its only stop in Louisiana. The volleyball tournament and Jet Ski competition will be filmed and broadcast on the Beach Sports Network.

Contraband Days will also feature “Aussie Kingdom,” an Australian animal show with different species including kangaroos. Annual events include the barbecue cookoff, arm wrestling tournament and Tour Lafitte. Other events include a children’s pirate costume contest and the Nancy Melton and Friends Watercolor Show.

Another event is the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge, which will include about 150 firemen from all over the country and Canada. There will also be a red fish tournament, where teams vie for the heaviest fish. Teams will meet at the Prien Lake Park boat launch.
