“We are excited about the fifth annual CenterPoint Energy Red River Balloon Rally and beyond thrilled to have CenterPoint Energy back as our Title Sponsor”, stated Kelly Wells, Executive Director of the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission. “We decided as a staff to move the dates forward to help kick off summer break with a bang. I personally am looking forward to the balloons flying in both of our cities as well as the amazing fireworks show and balloon glow at dusk. We are still working on the bands for next year’s event, but I promise the lineup will be just as entertaining as years past.”
Eric Barkley, District Director for CenterPoint Energy stated, “Events like this bring great attention to Shreveport-Bossier and it is a wonderful opportunity for CenterPoint Energy to connect and interact with the communities we serve. CenterPoint Energy and its employees love volunteering and giving back to the community.”
