Harvest Days at LSU Rural Life Museum (http://sites01.lsu.edu/wp/rurallife/)
Take a step back and take a look at how life might still be without the many advances in technology that we’ve enjoyed in the last century. The Rural Life Museum at LSU is great any time of the year, but during Harvest Days there are old-fashioned games and other hands-on activities, making it a great event for children or anyone who has a love for history. Come experience the beauty of rural Louisiana.

Germans in Louisiana? Roberts Cove has hosted a strong German presence for more than a century.
