In case you haven't heard, the City of Shreveport has closed Cross Lake due to flooding issues. Will it affect Floatilla 2024?

Will the current flooding we're experiencing affect Floatilla 2024?

That's a great question. Right now, that's going to be up to Mother Nature. Currently, the City of Shreveport has closed Cross Lake to any motorized boat activity. That means, that even if you live on Cross Lake, you are not allowed to access the lake from your private launch.

The governing body of Shreveport's water reservoir, Cross Lake, is the Shreveport Police Department. Currently, the lake is at 174.22 feet. The contour line on Cross Lake is 172 feet. Officials report that the lake will remain closed until levels go back down and are steady.

When is Cross Lake Floatilla this year?

Floatilla is back on Saturday, June 15, 2024, and I don't know about you, but just the thought of getting outdoors and enjoying Cross Lake has me excited! This year's event is the 33rd annual Cross Lake Floatilla. Yes, it's been around that long, but that's no surprise because it's a LOT of fun! Activities will center around the Lowe-McFarlane American Legion Post 14 located at 5315 S. Lakeshore Drive in Shreveport.

Grab your cowboy hat and get ready to pass a good time starting at 11 am. This year's theme is 'Hoedown at the Lake' and will include the requisite boat parade and poker run as well as music by 8 Track.

One note before you head out on the water when we get the all-clear... Make sure to check your boat registration and get your updated Cross Lake sticker. Also, remember that the proceeds from the event benefit local charities that don't get a lot of local support! That means you'll be partying with a purpose.
