Looking for a great way to celebrate Labor Day weekend then you don't want to miss the final installment of SummerFest.

The free, family-friendly festival will take place from noon until 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 30 in the Red River District.

Local food trucks Jester Catering, Lilah's Bakery, Missing Link and Grill of the Dead will again be on hand to offer their own unique flavor to festival attendees.

"What the Funk?", a Red River District favorite, will provide musical entertainment for the festival.

Spinner Entertainment will bring their much anticipated street performers, from jugglers to hula-hoopists, along with added sideshow flair. 
Owner of Spinner Entertainment Josh Ellis said, "We are excited to bring something very new to the downtown Shreveport entertainment scene. This Saturday we will not only have the stilt walkers and jugglers who had such a good time with the families last month. We are also bringing a hula hoopist and another very special performer. I don't want to ruin the surprise, but let me just say this is something you won't see anywhere else in the area!"

Inflatable attractions, Holiday Lanes, Splash Kingdom and Bloonz the Clown will be on hand to keep the children happy. 

Event coordinator for the Red River District Marissa Carbine said, "This has been a great summer, and I can't believe it's almost over, but it's been great to see SummerFest in the District become a part of the entertainment landscape of downtown Shreveport."
