SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER – In celebration of National Travel and Tourism Week, May 1-7, the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau and KSLA are encouraging locals to visit Shreveport-Bossier’s tourist attractions such as museums, festivals, art galleries and more while taking advantage of exclusive admission discounts available only at www.beafanofshreveportbossier.org. More than 20 discounts are being offered on the website, which will officially launch on Friday, April 1. Users must enter a valid e-mail address to receive the discounts, which may be redeemed at participating businesses during National Travel and Tourism Week. Users can register to receive the discounts at any time during the promotional period of April 1-May 7. Locals who make use of the discounts are asked to share their experiences on social media with the hashtag #BeAFanofSB.
“Locals can be a community’s best ambassadors,” said Stacy Brown, president of the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau. “We designed the ‘Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier’ campaign in an effort to encourage locals to get better acquainted with all of the great things to see and do right in their own back yard.”
Examples of discounts being offered by the participating attractions include buy-one-get-one-free bowling at Holiday Lanes, 50% off flyboarding with iFlyh2o (formerly Ark-La-Tex FlyBoard), buy-one-get-one-free admission to Jubilee Zoo and more. Each participating tourist attraction, as well as visitor centers at 629 Spring Street and Shreveport Regional Airport, will also be distributing free, hand-held “Be a Fan” fans promoting the discount program.
One person who registers for the discounts will be randomly selected to win a huge staycation prize package. The package includes: a one-night stay at the Hilton Garden
Inn/Homewood Suites by Hilton Shreveport-Bossier; a Family 4-Pack for the 2016 season at Splash Kingdom; a Family 4-Pack of tickets to Sci-Port Discovery Center; a $50 gift certificate to Jan’s River Restaurant; complimentary buffet passes from Horseshoe Bossier City Hotel and Casino; and two free admission passes to the Marlene Yu Museum. A winner will be selected from among all qualifying entrants on Monday, May 9.
