Wednesday is the 4th of July, the most American of holidays... and many of us will have the day off and some time to enjoy some the different events going on in Kiss Country. Here are some things going on in Kiss Country that you may want to check out.

    You gotta have fireworks on July 4th and the downtown Shreveport Riverfront is the place to see them. Festival starts at 1pm, Fireworks at 9pm, live music with Kip Moore immediately following the fireworks show.

    Moonrise Kingdom at Robinson Film Center

    Catch a movie on your day off.

    I'm recommending this film because I saw it this weekend. This fun and quirky comedy starring Bruce Willis and Bill Murray will satisfy movie lovers of all sorts. It's in limited release around the country and can currently be seen at the Robinson Film Center.
