The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau compiled a list of 12 things to do this summer in Shreveport-Bossier as part of their Press Play marketing campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to increase tourism after a two-month, shelter-in-place order to combat COVID-19’s adverse effect on the community. This is the perfect way to give back to the community while also having fun. As participants check these fun summer activities off of their bucket list, screenshot the graphic below and tag Shreveport-Bossier: Louisiana’s Other Side on Facebook to share your photos.
