The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau’s Mardi Gras Roadshow is set for 7 p.m. Jan. 27 at Stanley’s Famous Pit Bar B-Q, 525 S. Beckham Ave.

The event will include music by Dustin Becker and Chris Oliver and New Orleans-style jazz music from Sabine River Brass Band, slices of king cake, parade beads and giveaways, according to a news release from the tourism bureau.

“The purpose of this party is to welcome Carnival season and say a big ‘thank you’ to East Texans for their support of Mardi Gras festivities in Shreveport-Bossier over the years,” said Brandy Evans, vice president of communications for the bureau.

Guests can pick up copies of “The Gris Gris Guide to Mardi Gras in Shreveport-Bossier” and enter to win tickets to the Red River Mardi Gras Bash.
