What Will the Event Include?

Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson is bringing this huge event to several venues in the community. It will include comedy, music and all kinds of fun events.

Shreveport Mayor Tom Arceneaux says this will be like hosting the Independence Bowl, the Red River Revel and a Mardi Gras Parade all at one time. He says "it certainly is a challenge to plan and coordinate all of the events that are being planned."

Thursday, August 8: Kickoff the Humor & Harmony weekend with an exciting performance at Shreveport’s Independence Stadium.

Mayor Arceneaux says security will be a top priority. Shreveport Police and Caddo Deputies will be involved. But they are also reaching out to Probation and Parole and other groups to help keep these events safe. SPAR Director Shelly Ragle says private security companies will also be used to help keep things safe. She says Uber lots will be set up to make sure guests can get rides from all of these venues.
