Summer in Metairie, LA, is finally here. While Spring was mostly spent quarantining inside to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many people may be bursting at the seams to get outside and enjoy the hot, muggy evenings that are so familiar to the New Orleans area. We still encourage taking the necessary precautions you’ve been taking when going out to crowded areas, but we also want to highlight some of the events coming up in the Metairie area this coming July.
