It's a day filled with mint juleps, food and of course, the race!

Shreveport Derby Day is back for year number three on Saturday, May 6. Each year, we all dress up in our Derby Day best (hats are highly encouraged) and watch the Kentucky Derby on the lawn of the R.W. Norton Art Gallery. It's the only event to ever take place on the gorgeous lawn at the art gallery in its 50 year history.

This year guests will sip on delectable mint juleps while dining on food prepared by Drake Catering. In addition, Wine Country Bistro will provide the spirits, while Great Raft Brewing will handle the beer. John Lisi & Delta Funk of New Orleans will be this year's entertainment, along with raffles, lawn games and contests for best dressed.

The event will take place from 2-6 p.m. with the official after party taking place at Superior Steakhouse. You can purchase your tickets at derbydayshreveport.com.
