It's going down in Atlanta this Labor Day weekend with the 8th annual LudaDay Weekend end-of-summer party.

Call it a party with a purpose, because the weekend will include everything from a celebrity basketball games, where Team Luda will take on Team Usher.  The nightly after parties will take place at the elite Prive’, and one at the beautiful Club Compound, not to mention the closing event; the private pool party, appropriately named, “Splash Waterfalls.”  Here's a look at some of the celebrity b-ball action from last year.

However, this yearly event is also all about giving back in a BIG way.  Since 2005, LudaDay Weekend has been attracting supporters from all over the nation organizing several community initiatives including;  inviting hundreds of youth to a Braves baseball game at Turner Field,  a giveaway of 20 new cars to underprivileged families to massive donations to Mayor Kasim Reed’s Centers for Hope, scholarship donations to Morehouse College & Clark Atlanta University.

This year, the festivities jump-off Thursday, August 29th through Monday, September 2nd 2013.  On Thursday, the event kicks off with a Ludacris Foundation High School Takeover at an Atlanta area school, a block party on the campus of Georgia State University and more.

The weekend is presented by The Ludacris Foundation, Hublot, Ebony Son Management, Soul Headphones, and DTP Records. For more information about the 8th Annual LudaDay Weekend, connect with Luda on Instagram @itsLudacris.
