Let the Good Times Roll Festival, Shreveport's Festival Plaza, Fri, June 17, through Sun, June 19

If mid-June and the summer heat has arrived, it's time for Festival Plaza, downtown Shreveport, to showcase an annual and classic festival called Let the Good Times Roll. Joseph Odom, chairman of the board of Rho Omega fraternity, pointed me to the festival website,, for the schedule. While Rho Omega is known across the city as the Good Times festival host, the group has been a quiet but insistent cultural force since 1923.
