* no charge for the trail ride, but please pre-register by calling the Strand at 226-1481.

* riders depart from the Strand at 6:00 p.m., travel throughout downtown Shreveport.

* show begins at 7:30 p.m.

* plenty of free parking for horse trailers in the vicinity of the Strand.

* security will be provided before, during and after the performance.

"This is a fun event and we invite families to get in the spirit, dust off their cowboy boots, jingle their spurs and saddle up with the trail ride," says Fogger.

Riders in the Sky shows are feature western music and humor. They are best known for their children's music, including Woody's Roundup from Toy Story 2, which earned them a Grammy award, and Monsters, Inc. Scream Factory Favorites.
