Shreveport Aquarium need Volunteers!

Shreveport Aquarium intends on making a “splash” in kicking off 2017 with two world record attempts; one each during the Krewe of Gemini Parade (February 25th).  The current record stands at 8,453 people. 

The attempt will begin at the start of the parade route on Clyde Fant Parkway, just to the South of Lake Street.  The line will continue down the length of the parade route to the Shreveport-Barksdale Highway interchange. 


In keeping with guidelines set by the Guinness Book of World Records, Shreveport Aquarium is required to recruit a host of stewards to assist along the route. Those who wish to volunteer as a  steward for the event can do so online at www.shreveportaquarium.com/volunteers. Volunteers for this event must be 18 years of age or older.  Volunteers will receive a free Shreveport Aquarium “Catch the Wave” t-shirt for their participation.
