Our state fair certainly holds some wonderful memories.

The State Fair of Louisiana kicks of its 110th year today in Shreveport. The fair will run through November 13 and if you do the math you will notice that there are two extra days that we will enjoy this year. This is in an effort to combat any bad weather, like we had last year.

For many, what the fair looks like today is all they know. For others, there are fond memories of what the fair was in years past. Our friends at Twin Blends Photography are at it again, bringing us a beautiful blend of the past and present.

This video shows us how the fair came to be what it is today. It maybe even make you wish that some of these events were still in existence. Enjoy past photos blended with those of today, and even some old video of one of Shreveport's oldest and most beloved traditions.
