In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

It’s time to Shine on Line

It’s a fun Shreveport tradition unlike any other. Everyone is invited to the Annual Pumpkin Shine on Line.

This free event is held on Tuesday, October 22 from 4:30pm-8:30pm at Betty Virginia Park. Stroll through the park and marvel at the stupendous displays created by schools, families, pumpkin artists, and local businesses. Some pumpkins are painted. Others are carved. While you are walking the park and marveling at the incredible art, community leaders will judge the jack-o-lanterns to see who’s the best. Equally important, entertainment will be provided by area school bands, cheerleaders, and choirs.  Also, food and concessions are available for purchase. Without a doubt, everyone will have a blast.

Due to thousands of attendees descending on Betty Virginia Park, you are encouraged to park at Mall St. Vincent and ride the free shuttle to Betty Virginia Park. Shuttle service runs from 4:00pm till 9:00pm. Once the sun goes down, the paths around the park will light up thanks to 2,500 luminaries. Find out more on the SB Fun Guide page and follow the fun on Facebook.

Sponsored by Southfield School and SPAR.

Maybe the pumpkins you see at Shine on Line will inspire you to carve and decorate your own pumpkin. Pick one up at a local patch.
