Teri Matthews, Chair of the Mudbug Madness Festival, speaks about the return of this year’s event, kicking off the SWEPCO Mudbug Madness Treasure Hunt and the grand prize of $ 1,500.
The annual festival, which was canceled last year due to the pandemic, will take place on Memorial Day weekend May 28-30 at the Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport.
This year’s musical guests include legends from Louisiana such as Wayne Toups, Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas, Chubby Carrier and Geno Delafose from Shreveport, but nationally known The Seratones and Willie Jones and the well-known rock band Sister Hazel.
Meanwhile, the annual SWEPCO Mudbug Madness Treasure Hunt, valued at $ 1,500, is ongoing with the first three clues posted.
Note # 1:
While we explain where the treasure is hiding, we ask that you obey the law.
No need to dig holes, step on them, or climb poles to get where our prize is.
Note # 2:
You can sweat in the heat; in the rain can get wet.
That the treasure is out would be a sure thing.
Note # 3:
Near a bank, not another
Our treasure is waiting to be discovered.
Matthews points out that while there are fifteen clues in total, with one clue added daily, she expects the treasure to be found long before they are all released.

Legendary musicians who rocked the stag in Shreveport
Here is a selection of the iconic pieces of music that have played Shreveport’s Memorial Coliseum over the past 60 years. The Hirsch was basically home to bands like Van Halen and ZZ Top, who regularly put the Hirsch at the top of their tours. Because of that, we’re actually not going to put them on this list because for Shreveport they were basically “house bands” … and that’s NOT a bad thing.
