Celebrate the Season in Shreveport – Bossier

Celebrate Holidays on the Red in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana. You and your family are invited to take part in our signature events. From dazzling fireworks at the annual Rockets Over the Red festival, twinkling light displays at Christmas in Roseland, and flurries of snow at the Sno-Port exhibit inside Sci-Port Discovery Center, there are many ways to make the season bright.

While you’re here, catch a glimpse of the new Bakowski Bridge of Lights spanning the Red River between our sister cities. Get the perfect view while strolling through RiverView Park in downtown Shreveport or while finishing up some holiday shopping at the Louisiana Boardwalk outdoor shopping center in Bossier City.

For a delicious meal, head to the East Bank District in Bossier City for Cajun food at BeauxJax Crafthouse, frozen daiquiris at the Frozen Pirogue, or fresh pizzas at Flying Heart Brewery. On the Shreveport side, grab some stuffed shrimp at Orlandeaux’s or try flavorful street tacos at Ki’Mexico. Sweetport Ice Cream Shop or Lowder Bakery can take care of those sugary Christmas cravings.
