Our Top 5 Shreveport/Bossier City Weekend Events Friday, November 9 – Sunday, November 11
As we move in to the final days of the State Fair of the Louisiana and Veteran's Day weekend, there are no shortage of events to get involved in!
As we move into the final days of the 112th annual State Fair of Louisiana, now is the time to hit the midway if you haven't already! With so many things to see and do, you'll regret it if you miss it! You especially don't want to miss Sunday's annual Veterans and Military Appreciation Day with military, active and retired, and their families receiving free parking and admission. At 2pm our Veterans will be honored by a playing of the National Anthem, followed by a Veterans parade down the midway.
Head to the official state theatre of Louisiana, the Strand Theatre, in downtown Louisiana this Saturday at 3pm for a special production of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker. This is a great way to start the holiday season for the entire family with tickets starting at $28.
If you've always been entranced by the story of Romeo and Juliet, see the modern day version this Friday night at the Strand Theatre with a production of West Side Story with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra. Transport yourself to the upper east side of New York City without worrying about street gangs at 7:30pm with ticket prices ranging from $25-$95.
