Our Top Shreveport/Bossier City Weekend Events Friday, August 4 – Sunday, August 6, 2017
It’s back to school time in the Ark-La-Tex and while many of us will be trying to figure out exactly what a map pencil is, the rest of us will be enjoying family friendly activities, live music, a slice of Shreveport’s musical history and some just might choose to push themselves to the limit in the 37th annual River Cities Triathlon!
The ‘Master of the Telecaster,’ James Burton, is a local treasure and he and Roy Orbison Jr. will host events throughout the weekend for the community at artspace. Make sure to click the link above for a complete listing of events, including the classic car show!
Over 1,200 folks are expect to compete in this year’s 37th annual River Cities Triathlon at Cypress Black Bayou Park and Recreation Center Saturday. The grown folks will get started at 7:30am and the kids will begin at 8am. Please be careful if you’re driving in this area tomorrow morning because there will be a TON of bicyclists on the road!
Friday night is the finale of the Louisiana Boardwalk’s Summer Series. From 6-8pm there will be big sales celebrating back to school and the Louisiana sales tax holiday, live music, activities for the family and the final clue in the treasure hunt for a $1,000 Louisiana Boardwalk gift certificate.
