Ahhhh! Memorial Day weekend... The official kickoff to summer and the weekend of our annual Mudbug Madness festival and all things fun in the Ark-La-Tex!
You can't kickoff summer in the Ark-La-Tex without Mudbug Madness. Get in on the fun in Shreveport's downtown Festival Plaza through this Sunday from 11am-11pm each day with plenty of crawfish, cold drinks and the best music around!
All the world loves a circus and the big top is at George's Pond at Hirsch Coliseum this weekend! Enjoy one show Friday at 7pm, three shows Saturday at 11am, 3pm and 7pm and then Sunday at 11am and 3pm. Tickets start at just $9!

Sunday night at 7pm, Sam's Town Hotel and Casino is playing host to legend Chubby Checker with the Wildcats and you better believe they'll be doing 'The Twist!' Tickets start at $20.
While we can't promise that pigs will fly, they will fly down the track during the annual Memorial Day pig races at Harrah's Louisiana Downs Monday. Festivities start on the apron at 11am with fun for the entire family with food trucks, a kid zone with face painting, bounce houses, a water slide and even a petting zoo. Horse races start at 3:15pm.
Dwight Yoakam is making a return to Shreveport/Bossier Friday night for a nearly sold out, 21+ show at Horseshoe's Riverdome starting at 8pm. I say nearly sold out, because I found tickets on Ticketmaster Friday morning for $180 and $242 each!
