Crowds of people sampled the culinary offerings from more than 35 team booths.

Rose Garden: Forrest Dunn donated a vintage city of Shreveport street lamp in the name of his late wife, Donna, to the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum on April 26, and he was in turn honored with a rose garden planted around it. Two of Donna’s friends, Nancy McInnis and Sandy Guerin, reminisced. The light symbolizes Donna’s radiant smile and will leave a permanent glow as it lights the way to the future at the historic museum. The light is dated around 1924 on Milam Street and was restored to its original brilliance from a Model T to a Mercedes Forrest Dunn said. A reception followed on the west wing.
