In northwest Louisiana, the Shreveport/Bosser City area is a hub of commerce, events and activity. Barksdale Air Force Base is nearby and employs over 55,000 military personell and civilian. BAFB is a source of pride for the Ark-La-Tex region, serving as the home of the Mighty 8th Air force and 2nd Bomb Wing. 

The hub cities of Monroe and West Monroe are the perfect base camps for outdoors enthusiasts, hunters and sportsmen. From these communities, travelers enjoy quick access to destinations like Chemin-a-Haut State Park, north near Bastrop, as well as Winnsboro and its charming downtown Patriot Square.

The Rotary Club of Shreveport hosts the 2014 Red River Dragon Boat Festival, September 13th. Events take place at Riverview Park in downtown Shreveport, across Clyde Fant Parkway from the Sci-Port Discovery Center. After the opening ceremonies kick things off, a full day of dragon boats racing on the Red River excites participants and spectators alike. Join a team, or come out to Riverview Park to cheer on your favorite paddlers at Shreveport’s 6th Annual Red River Dragon Boat Festival.

Northern Louisiana is home to the 2014 State Fair of Louisiana, October 23rd through November 9th. The fairgrounds are located off Interstate 20, three miles west of downtown Shreveport. Now celebrating its 107th year of festivities, the State Fair of Louisiana brings the fun of the State Fair Carnival, exhibitions of the best of Louisiana livestock and agriculture, and daily elephant and tiger encounter shows. Entertainment includes the PRCA Rodeo November 1st, at Hirsch Coliseum, and the Louisiana State Cheerleading Championships on October 25th.

Before you know it, the holidays are upon us, and this year, Monroe is as festive as ever. Visit Santa’s Christmas Village with the family at Northeast Louisiana Children’s Museum, November 22nd through the end of the year, in Monroe. And don’t miss the Christmas Parade, on the first saturday of December. The parade winds through downtown Monroe and West Monroe, followed by a fireworks display reflecting against the Quachita river.
