With fall officially right around the corner, there's no shortage of things do to this weekend.
Here are five things we know of right now that might interest you.
This is an annual event sponsored by the Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier. It features numerous stations where kids can learn about safety. A popular feature is the Touch-a-Truck area, where you can see the inner workings of a fire truck, police car or helicopter. It's going on from 9 a.m. until noon at Sheriff's Safety Town. There's no cost for admission.
This is Chimp Haven's monthly event, where you get a chance to see the chimpazees that roam the sanctuary. Be sure to bring your cameras! It runs from 9 a.m. until noon. Admission for adults (13 years and older) is $10, children 6-12 are $5, and children 5 and under get in free.
This is a first for Shreveport, and for Centenary College. It's designed to allow local artists, educators, craftspeople and engineers to offer an engaging, hands-on opportunity for families to come out and see what they do. There's no cost for admission and the faire runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Centenary's Fitness Center.
