State Fair of Louisiana Kicks off in Shreveport
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.
