The Recreation Calendar ...

The big story for this Memorial Day weekend is that the recreation calendar seems to be back to somewhat normal. Channel 6 hits the highlights:

33rd Annual Greek Festival New Orleans

Out of the muck and grime left from floodwaters that inundated Lakeview and other parts of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina will come one of the biggest parties of the year from one of the oldest church congregations in the country.

Aquarium & Entergy I-MAX Theater Reopening

The Aquarium of the Americas, which lost more than 10,000 fish as the result of Hurricane Katrina, opened its doors to the public Friday. Various activities are planned throughout the entire weekend.

15th Annual New Orleans Wine and Food Experience

The city welcomes tourists and residents to experience New Orleans' rich cultural heritage in a five-day experience. There will be an indigenous cuisine paired with more than 400 fine wines from vineyards around the world against a backdrop of local art, architecture, music and rare antiques.

18th Annual Louisiana Sportsman Invitational Fishing Rodeo

Grand Isle is hosting its annual Louisiana Sportsman Invitational Fishing Rodeo. The event runs from Friday until Sunday. Proceeds from entry fees, food, drinks, and raffle tickets will all benefit Camp Challenge -- a camp for kids with cancer and other disorders.

Zephyrs Spend Memorial Weekend At Home

The New Orleans Zephyrs will be spending their entire Memorial Day weekend at home. Come support them as they take on Oklahoma at the Zephyrs Stadium.
