Lake Charles Apartments for Rent
For those in search fun, Lake Charles delivers with its sunny, balmy atmosphere, endless festivals and events, beautiful waterfront location, and historic sites.
One of the largest festivals in Lake Charles, Contraband Days, takes place over 12 days and features a carnival midway, three stages for live entertainment, a sailing regatta, fireworks, Cajun food, and a parade.

Other major festivals and fairs that take place in Lake Charles include the Texas/Louisiana Crawfish Festival, Mardi Gras, rodeos, the Cal-Ca-Chew Food Festival, Art Fest, Marshland Festival, Cajun French Music & Food Festival, and Downtown at Sundown.
