Each year during the first full week of May, the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau takes part in National Travel and Tourism Week. We host our annual P.R.I.D.E. Awards – the local tourism and hospitality industry’s biggest awards ceremony – during National Travel and Tourism Week. We also organize media appearances, public events and other ways to highlight the importance of travel and tourism to Shreveport-Bossier’s economy.
This year, on top of all of that good stuff, we’re giving away a “staycation” prize package as well as a bundle of exclusive discounts being offered by local attractions like Sci-Port Discovery Center, the Marlene Yu Museum, iFlyH2O (formerly Ark-La-Tex Flyboard), Holiday Lanes and many more. All you’ve gotta do to enter to win the staycation and receive the discounts is visit the BeAFanofSB.com website and sign up for the giveaway.
Here’s everything that’s included in the staycation package, which one lucky winner will receive:
One-night stay at Hilton Garden Inn Shreveport-Bossier in Bossier City (it’s worth noting that they have a pretty great pool)
Family 4-pack to Splash Kingdom Water Park
Family 4-pack to Sci-port Discovery Center
$50 gift certificate to Jan’s River Restaurant
6 bowling passes to Holiday Lanes
Everyone who signs up will receive the discounts. A few of my favorite discounts included in the package are: 50% discount on flyboarding with iFlyH2O (formerly Ark-La-Tex Flyboard), May 1-31 with promotional code; buy-one-get-one-free bowling games at Holiday Lanes; free admission to the Marlene Yu Museum, May 1-7; two-for-one “Busted Coconut” signature drinks at Margaritaville Bossier City‘s Busted Coconut Bar; and more. There are about 20 discounts in all and, if someone were to use all of the discounts, they could easily save hundreds of dollars and have a whole lot of fun.
