An area financial institution is a lead sponsor of the annual Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Induction Celebration , donating $12,500. The traditional Kickoff Reception on Thursday evening at Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in Natchitoches begins the three day 2017 Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Induction Celebration.
It is one of three free events, along with the Friday night Block Party on Front Street in the 500 block from 6-10 pm, and the Saturday morning Saints and Pelicans Junior Training Camp at the NSU WRAC (old Men’s Gym) beginning at 10 am. There are about 85 slots remaining for the Junior Training Camp, which does require a signed waiver form available on the LaSportsHall.com website. Registration is also open Saturday morning prior to the clinic at the WRAC.
The Block Party Friday night will feature two south Louisiana bands, Parish County Line and the Chase Tyler Band will perform, and about 9:15 pm, a fireworks show will take place over Cane River Lake. Food vendors will have items for sale. The Saints and Pelicans will have activity stations for kids. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs.
