PINEVILLE, La. (KALB) - What's better than music, food, drinks, and great weather to start your Labor Day weekend?
The Exchange Club of Alexandria partnered with the City of Pineville to make sure Cenla residents had the perfect weekend leading into the holiday.
The city's first Buhlow BBQ Bash was held Saturday evening.
It was the perfect family event with jumpers, slides, a petting zoo, live music, vendors, and more!
Doug Gann, Director of Downtown Development and Special Event said there will be more events like this one, moving forward.
“We're going to try to do anything we can so the people of Shreveport, Monroe, Lafayette can say hey, you know what, we want to go to Central Louisiana, we want to go to Pineville, we want to go to Buhlow Lake for the weekend, we're going to get people coming up here because I’m tired of people getting out of town to go do stuff."
All proceeds from the Buhlow BBQ Bash will go towards benefitting Pineville's Senior Citizen Center on Main Street.
