Ludacris Kicks Off 9th Annual LudaDay Weekend in Atlanta
Since 2005, Ludacris, born Christopher Bridges, has taken over Labor Day weekend in order to give back to the Atlanta community.
The rapper-turned-actor's Ludacris Foundation spearheads the event each year while collaborating with other celebrities and their charities as well. Everyone from Justin Bieber and Ne-Yo to Chris Brown and Teyana Taylor have participated in LudaDay Weekend.
This year's no different with the festivities kicking off on Thursday night (Aug. 28) for a charity bowling event from 7PM to 11PM at Bowlmor Lanes (2175 Savoy Dr., Atlanta, Ga., 30341).
On Friday afternoon (Aug. 29), the 'Fast And the Furious' actor returns to the Georgia State University campus he attended as an undergrad for the Fresh Hotel Presents... Fresh Talk Panel featuring speakers like Angela Simmons, Toya Wright and others.
Saturday (Aug. 30) is guaranteed to be an afternoon of fun as Mike WILL Made It hosts a block party (location TBA) that's sure to bring out the younger crowd. The block party will host performances by Rae Sremmurd, Bobby Schmurda, Street Execs' Young Dolph and Cap-1.
On Sunday (Aug. 31), the GSU Sports Arena (125 Decatur St., SE Atlanta, Ga., 30303) is the place to be as Luda's team goes head to head with the Young Money Cash Money squad.
All in the spirit of giving back, it looks like LudaDay Weekend 2014 is primed to make its ninth year its biggest yet.
