Haughton Night Out to Feature ‘Battle of the Badges’
Shreveport and Bossier and other towns all across Northwest Louisiana are preparing for our version of "National Night Out" tomorrow night, Tuesday, October 4.
That includes the Town of Haughton, where residents, friends, family and others from the Haughton area will congregate at the Joe Delaney Park from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm for all the activities including food trucks from Uneeda Taco, Music To Your Mouth, Timmy's Backwood BBQ and Sugah Cotton Candy. Other events scheduled include a Life Air landing, children's fingerprinting and a scavenger hunt.
Haughton's event will also include a Haughton Police Department K-9 demonstration from Officer Kennon and K-9 Foley.
Another of the night's events is sure to be a crowd favorite. For the second time, Haughton will add a little twist to tomorrow evening's activities with the "Battle of the Badges."
The Haughton Police Department will square off against the Haughton Fire Department in a different sort of "battle" as they raise money for the annual Christmas in Haughton parade and festival coming on December 10.
However, the only blows that will be thrown will be the pies that visitors can purchase to throw at their favorite officer or firefighter. Pies will be $2 each or three pies for $5.
Handicap parking will be available at Joe Delaney Park beginning at 5:00 pm, but all others are asked to park at Haughton Middle School and take the free shuttle to Joe Delaney Park provided from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
