Becoming a popular tourist destination requires a rich history, impressive landmarks, and a thriving community. Shreveport-Bossier has much to showcase in this regard, especially its people.
The Northwest Louisiana Walk of Stars is dedicated to spreading the word about the many nationally and internationally acclaimed artists, athletes, educators, industrialists, inventors, musicians, politicians, and/or professionals with strong ties to the area. The organization manages a tourist attraction and developing landmark known as the Northwest Louisiana Walk of Stars. The Walk is located under the Texas Street Bridge in the Red River Entertainment District in downtown Shreveport and consists of concrete blocks that contain the handprints, footprints and signatures of those who have been inducted. It also includes a large kiosk that explains the mission of the Walk of Stars and details all of our previous inductees. The Walk inspires students and residents who are striving to be the best in their field. It tells a story about the amazing people who have strolled our streets, launched their careers here and risen to fame.
The Northwest Louisiana Walk of Stars is the offspring of a Chamber of Commerce initiative which started in 1997 and has since evolved into a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Today, the Walk has grown to feature 28 honorees. But the list of worthy future candidates for the Walk is incredibly long and forever growing.
We have so much more to share, so many more people to honor because of their notable achievements, but we need your help. The cost of each induction adds up and we would greatly appreciate any monetary donation you might be willing to contribute in support of our efforts.
