The rides are up and the State Fair of Louisiana is set to go in Shreveport. Thursday is Dollar Day at the Fair! From 3-10pm parking is just a dollar and all rides are a dollar.

 

Crews have been busy all week getting the rides ready. Safety and security are top priorities this year. Last year 4-year-old Sheldon Lewis was critically hurt when he got trapped under a kiddie ride for about 20 minutes.

One big change for this year is that the rides won't open on weekdays until 3 in the afternoon. This will give school groups a better opportunity to see all the education exhibits at the fair without having to rush through to get the kids to the rides. The fair also has a new ride operator this year...it is Crabtree Amusements.
