We have finally entered into the first full week of September and Fall is so close we can almost taste it (and the pumpkin spice latte). Shreveport has been busy this week with a roundup of food trucks, the announcement of Pride in the Park, getting to know more about the Film Prize finalists and more.
This week we pandered to the downtown crowd by rounding up a few local food trucks that can typically be found at hotspot The Lot. Check out who made the list for your next quick lunch option.
Pride in the Park
The family-friendly event is back and PACE is very excited to welcome the community back to Betty Virginia Park for a day of family-friendly fun, activities and more.
The Robinson Film Center bid farewell to its executive director Meghan Hochstetler Avallone last December and since then the independent theater has been on the search for a new one. Wendell Riley stepped into that role in August and talked to us about his love of cinema and his goals for the future of film at RFC.
Film Prize is just around the corner and now that we know who will be competing in October, it’s time to find out more about the competitors and the films that will be showing on the silver screen.
For 27 years popular downtown staple Minicine¿ has been a safe haven for artists, musicians and filmmakers of all ages and walks of life. Now, it’s time to say sad goodbye and take a look back at the legacy and fond memories of this iconic venue.
