Bring a chair to the Fourth Annual Highland Jazz & Blues Festival

Grassroots neighborhood organizations like the Highland Area Partnership know how to throw a party in Shreveport. Their fourth jazz and blues festival begins at noon this Saturday in Columbia Park.
Nov. 17 is an election day too, so cast your votes in the morning and go enjoy classic local performers like the Bluebirds (at right) or Dorothy Prime and the Bluesjumpers. Hear any of the 11 bands slated to play for free. Get more info about the event on a couple blogs: HAP and shreveport.blogspot.com. Read more in Preview Friday.

I'm beginning to be more passionate about these smaller festivals like HJ&B and the Diwali Festival of Lights (that just happened at the Municipal Plaza) than I am the bigger, more labor intensive ones.

They remind me of the street festivals that used to happen around the Caddo Parish Courthouse.

Thanks for the referral to sptBlog, Alan.

Good luck wrapping the rhinovirus. Ours had a shocking 3 week run.
