Can you feel it? The Fair is in the air!!!  The State Fair of Louisiana finally opens next Thursday, October 28 and will run through November 14 at the State Fairgrounds in Shreveport!

Along with all the incredible food and the midway and the carnival rides, one of the biggest attractions to the fair each year is the sheer volume of quality live entertainment.

Now, for me and my bunch, we love the free shows like the "Hollywood Racing Pigs", but each year, they manage to have some incredible entertainment from some of the biggest names in the country.  This year is no exception!

On Friday, October 29, they'll have Wayne Toups and then on November 13, Colt Ford is at the fair and your regular fair ticket gets you in absolutely free!

He's bringing special guest Frank Ray and the show begins at 8:00 pm

Of course, the Academy of Country Music Award nominee, Colt Ford, has been to Shreveport a number of times like back in 2011 when he was at the Red River Revel and in 2014 when he appeared at The Stage at Silver Star, but each time he manages to bring something new to his music and the stage.

From my personal experience at his previous shows, saying that a Colt Ford concert is "fun" is like saying that the North Pole is "kinda chilly."  In fact, its almost like where an LSU football game meets a Mardi Gras parade.

So, if you're looking for a fun party night at the State Fair, the Colt Ford concert November 13 is a dang good choice!
