If you use groupon again, have more than one entry point for groupon customers. I thought I parked close but when I learned that groupon customers had to enter at the main entrance only, I was a little upset by that. I'm fairly young and able to walk a little extra, but my girlfriend is pregnant so I had to hear it from her so now you do.

i did not like how we could not get in at any gate i had my mother from out of town with me who is disabled and i had to have her walk from one in to the other just because they did not accept the groupon ticket at all ticket stands but at only one which was to far for her to walk down the hill there were four ticket stands that we had passed befor we were allowed in with the groupon. If i would have known that i would have just paid the extra admitions then go through all of that hassle.

I had to walk all the way down the hill to use my Groupon coupon. Only one booth could validate the Groupons. That was most inconvenient. The shuttles were not dropping people off down there.

From Our Editors

Since 1984, Shreveport has paid tribute to a cherished Louisiana tradition—the crawfish boil—with its annual Mudbug Madness Festival. As many as 56,000 people flock each day to what has blossomed into one of the state’s most popular Cajun festivals, where they nosh on succulent seafood and compete in crawfish-eating contests that encourage participants to test their stomach size and sabotage their opponents by sneaking lobsters into their bowls. “One year, we had a man eat 42 pounds of crawfish in 30 minutes,” marvels festival coordinator Melanie. “We’ve cut it down to 15 minutes since then.” In addition to eating crustaceans, attendees can also lure them across the stage during crawdad-calling contests. “It gets really lively,” Melanie says, describing how the sirens-in-training are allowed to do nearly anything they can think of to entice the crawfish into their reach.

Cajun, zydeco, and jazz tunes waft through the air during the festivities, emanating from three stages helmed by headliners such as Wayne Toups, Rockin’ Dopsie, Jr., Super Water Sympathy, and Windstorm. The rhythms reach the ears of shoppers browsing original artwork and handmade jewelry in the arts area, expanded after previous years' success. On Thursday, local athletes can work up an appetite in the 5K race. Children of all ages burn off energy in the kids' area, where they can somersault in the bounce house, tackle art projects, or plop down in front of a stage where magicians and storytellers keep their young minds off the uncertain fate of lollipop futures.
