There will be a community Mardi Gras parade to welcome the contestants on May 14th on Texas Street and will roll at Noon. The celebration will include food trucks and throws for everyone! Be sure to mark your calendars to attend Mardi Gras in May with Miss USA & Miss Teen USA!
If you'd like to be a preferred vendor for the contestants (hair salons, spas, dry cleaners, etc.) please contact Liz Hennigan at the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau. Lhennigan@sbctb.org
We're asking all businesses who have a marquee, to add a "Welcome" message for those visiting for the pageant. Everyone will begin arriving for the events around May 10th.
Posters will be available soon to display in your business window. Let Erin know if you would like one. We'll get them to you ASAP.
Welcome materials are being collected for the family, friends and fans of the contestants who will be visiting with the girls. If you have a coupon, offer or other incentive that you'd like to provide to the visitors, please email that to Erin.
