Music and the outdoors in Shreveport-Bossier go together like peanut butter and jelly, especially during this time of year when the southern heat hasn’t reached the stifling level, yet. So, if you’re making plans for outdoor fun this weekend, consider heading out to Music in the Park, 1-5 p.m. Saturday, May 18.
This is the second year for the event, presented by Southern Hills Homeowners Association in partnership with Shreveport Public Assembly and Recreation the Soldiers’ Angels. It was created as a free family fun event for the southwest Shreveport community with plenty of games, activities, food vendors and more. However, if you’ve checked out this year’s music line-up, they’re packing a little star power as well.
Among the performers will be X Factor Finalist Willie Jones, the Captain Shreve graduate with the signature high-top fade and rich baritone, who blew X Factor judges away with his rendition of the Josh Turner hit, “Your Man” in 2012. And this is a great chance to catch him in town before he hits the road with the rest of his X Factor alums for the UneXpected Tour this summer.
Music in the Park will be held at Southern Hills Metro Park, 1002 Bert Kouns Industrial Loop in Shreveport. The event is dog-friendly, but pet owners must adhere to leash laws. Call Becky Mire at (318) 834-7179 for more information. Visit Shreveport-Bossier Fun Guide for more events.
