Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — The 30th annual Mudbug Madness festival kicked off Thursday morning at Shreveport's Festival Plaza with a celebrity eating contest featuring KMSS' own Annie Andersen. While she didn't win the contest, that went to Assistant Police Chief Wayne E. Smith for the second year in a row, she did get an "A" for effort.
Mudbug Madness will run through May 26. With food, live music and fun events plans, coordinators are sure this will be the best year yet.
The festival is open from 11am to 11pm Thursday through Sunday.
