Bass Pro Shops in Bossier City Hosting Labor Day Hometown Festival

Amanda Currier

Labor Day weekend signals the last hurrah of summer as families finish vacations and kids head back to school. This year, enjoy summer’s grand finale at Bass Pro Shops during the Labor Day Hometown Festival.

This fun, free family event occurs Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 from noon to 5 p.m. at 54 Bass Pro Shops store locations*. The Hometown Festival activities include games and crafts, gift card giveaways and sweepstakes, as well as food sampling and outdoor seminars for the whole family to enjoy.

Late summer and early fall are great for free family fun events such as Bass Pro Shops Hometown Festival where the kids can participate in activities such as the Metal Detector Treasure Hunt. They also can try their hand at Casting Buckets or enjoy the Bass Pro Shops®/Daisy® Shooting Range and Duck Pond Game where kids can pick a duck for a chance to win a light-up wrist band. Kids will want to complete all four activities for a spin at the prize wheel (while supplies last).

Other festival activities offered include ‘color a duck’ crafts from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day (while supplies last) and free face painting throughout the event. Families can also visit the photo area to download a free picture where it looks like they are behind the wheel of Tony Stewart’s #14 Bass Pro Shops® car.

There’s still time left to cook out so keep the good times going and learn new techniques and tips to end the summer grilling season right. Learn about successful meat smoking, how to choose the right grills and Dutch oven cooking during the free Hometown Festival seminars each day.

• 1:30 p.m. Smokin’- Tips for successful meat smoking.
• 2:30 p.m. Outdoor Grilling- Choosing the right grill.
• 3:30 p.m. Dutch Oven Cooking – Tips for outdoor cooking.

Don’t miss the food samples both days, featuring tasty treats such as free hot dogs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and homemade ice cream from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. (while supplies last).

Visitors can register at the store to win one of three $25 gift cards that will be given away daily. Plus, they can enter a drawing for a chance to win a trip to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week™ in Las Vegas, which has a $2,800USD value. In addition, one winner in every store and one online winner will receive a Coca-Cola tailgating prize package. 

Please see the local store or visit Bass Pro’s website for details and official rules for each giveaway.
