The Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier promotion is back for 2018, so you may be seeing lots of posts here on 20×49.com that start with the phrase “Be a Fan.” The upside is that these posts will all contain exclusive, money-saving offers or discount codes. In this case, we’ve got a limited-time promo code that will save you $20 on tickets to Shreveport Derby Day 2018. The code expires on Sunday, April 22, so if you’d like to use it, just click here for details. Shreveport Derby Day 2018 will be held, 2-6 p.m., Saturday, May 5 on the grounds of R.W. Norton Art Gallery in Shreveport.
In just five years, Shreveport Derby Day has become one of the most popular day parties in town. The party’s location – in the breathtaking gardens of R.W. Norton Art Gallery – makes it unique. There’s also food by Drake Catering, an open bar by Wine Country Bistro, and lots of good-looking people in seersucker suits and sun dresses. Of course, there’s also a horse race that’s broadcast during the party, with all of the related horse racing fanfare: mint juleps, big hats, dudes in suit coats and shorts, etc. The regular admission price is $85; with the Be a Fan code, that price is reduced to $65.
Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier also consists of lots of other offers, special events, and an awesome staycation/vacation giveaway. While the entire site’s not quite ready for prime time just yet, you can now enter to win the staycation prize package. That package includes tickets to Shreveport Aquarium and Splash Kingdom Water Park, dining at Real BBQ & More and Cork & Barrel, and an overnight stay at Hampton Inn Airport. Enter the giveaway here.
