BATON ROUGE - As the first Friday of Lent is upon us, churches around the area are putting together their fish fry events. Religious or not, it's a time where everyone can participate in the act of fasting. 

Down here in Cajun country, staying away from meat on Fridays leading up to Easter isn't too difficultmostly because of all the seafood options we have right here in the city. 

Churches and organizations around the area are getting prepped and ready for dine-in, pick-up, and take-out. Below is a list of upcoming fish fry events.
