Best hat contest, soul food, hip shaking music at Jazz in the Park on Sat, Sept 26, 2 to 7 pm, Chris Hays Park, Mooretown, Shreveport
The 3rd annual Jazz in the Park! is set for Sat, Sept 26, from 2:00 – 7:00 pm at Chris Hays Park, located at 4363 Illinois Street, says Frederick Lewis.
2pm: Total Choice Band
3pm: Dirty Redd Jazz
4pm: Renee Caldwell and Lady Munira
6:15 pm: Mark Scroggins and Blaze Band
and, about 4:30 pm, the Best Hat Contest.
Expect crispy soul food galore: sausage, beef, chicken, turkey, fried chips and dough and gallons of potables.
It is safe to say that few people from East Shreveport have ever heard of Chris Hays Park or have any familiarity with Mooretown. Having been a part of the first Jazz in the Park I can testify that it is worth the while of Shreveporters from every part of the city to make this scene. The music, food and fellowship represent Shreveport at its best.
