April 1st is the kick-off event for Rendezvous on the Red. It's a special initiative created by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, Downtown Development Authority, and the cities of Shreveport and Bossier City, to generate awareness about all of the events going on along the riverfronts this spring. Things get underway with "Lunch on the Lawn" sponsored by Iberia Bank. It starts at 11 a.m. on the Texas Street side of the Caddo Parish Courthouse, and includes free live music...and a special surprise at 12:15! This event will happen every Friday through April 22nd and feature different local musicians. For a complete listing of Rendezvous on the Red events and dates, visit www.rendezvousonthered.com.
