Pops and Fur Ball: Two great Mother’s Day outings

News flash! This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and if you still don’t know what to get mom, we have two great suggestions — tickets to either the Companion Animal Alliance’s Fur Ball or the Baton Rouge Symphony’s Pops Concert at LSU’s Rural Life Museum. It’s an either/or situation because both events take place May 10. Gates for the symphony event open at 6 p.m. with the concert getting underway at 7:30. The pet-friendly Fur Ball, which is held at the Crowne Plaza, begins at 6:30 p.m.

Ticket information can be found online at Pam’s Party Calendar, theadvocate.com/columns/pambordelon.
