The 31st annual Mudbug Madness festival is set to start today at Festival Plaza.

The four day event started in the '80s and has since welcomed hundreds of thousands of people to Shreveport.

It goes from Thursday (May 22nd) to Sunday (May 25th), and goes from 11am-11pm.

NBC 6 News was out at Festival Plaza early Thursday morning to bring you the details.

We talked about a free app that all iPhone users can download.

It's called Mudbug Madness and tells you everything from event times and information to parking and tickets.
