The 65th Annual Bossier Lions Club Football Jamboree is this Friday at Airline High School. Gates open at 5pm. Admission is $8 and it's free for kids 6 and under.

Area Mardi Gras krewes will be letting the good times roll again this weekend as more royalty for the parade season will be revealed.

David Alvis says each year when they have The Eli Young Band in to play The Stage at Silver Star, it's easily the biggest weekend of the year and you're in luck, because they're coming to play The Stage this Saturday night. Doors open at 7pm with the show starting at 8pm for this 21+ show. Tickets are $30 in advance.
They call Wayne Toups the 'Cajun Springsteen' and you can see him for yourself this Saturday night inside Margaritaville's Paradise Theater. This 21+ show starts at 8pm and tickets are just $25. Don't forget that the 2nd Annual SIP Unlimited fundraiser is the following day (Sunday) at Margaritaville at 2pm... Why don't you just go ahead and plan to stay at Margaritaville this weekend?
Being the 'Crazy Horse Lady on the Radio,' it stands to reason that I would be all for any fundraiser that supports equine assisted therapy and I'm all about GREAT, a program through the Arc of Caddo-Bossier. 'GREAT' stands for Great Results Equine Assisted Therapies and offers therapeutic horseback riding services to both children and adults with disabilities. Either way, this Saturday starting at 8am, you can run or you can paddle or you can do both, all as a fundraiser for GREAT at Port-Au-Prince Cross Lake on S. Lakeshore Drive. Plus, there's a post race party with live music, raffles and more!
