This weekend, there will be no lack of Memorial Day activities.  From Mudbug Madness, to the 3 year Brew-versary celebration at Flying Heart, and a million events in between there's lots to choose from in the Shreveport / Bossier City area over the 3 day weekend.  One of the more unique events is going down at Louisiana Downs raceway on Monday, and the entire family is invited!  The world famous race track is hosting pig races!  Don't be fooled by their diminutive size, these little porkers have the chops to bring home the bacon!

But, it's not just flying sausages be vying for the gold on the track - there's so much more going on!  A free area will host a petting zoo, bounce houses, and water slides!  Make sure you bring a little cash, though - the event will be packed with food trucks, face-painters, and all-you-can-eat dining at Harrah's Club.

The event starts at noon, and the first race will kick off at 3:15.
