Several hundred sports enthusiasts and area residents attended the LA Capitol Federal Credit Union welcome reception for the 2018 inductees into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday, June 28th at the Hall of Fame and Museum. The event was free and open to the public and was an excellent opportunity to meet some of our state’s sports legends. In addition to meeting the inductees, the event goers were able to see items from their sports careers in a special display at the museum. There was also a silent auction of sports memorabilia to raise funds for the Hall of Fame.
The festivities are far from finished, however. Friday will feature a free concert with Zydeco legend, Wayne Toups, culminating with a signature Natchitoches fireworks show. Saturday morning will feature the Saints’ & Pelican’s Junior Training Camp at NSU’s WRAC facility in which a capacity crowd of over 200 young people will be able to test their abilities, win prizes and learn what it takes to succeed on-and off-the playing field. The weekend will conclude at the induction dinner Saturday evening at the Natchitoches Events Center.
