Shreveport may charge more for parade viewing

Higher rentals on viewing spots for Mardi Gras parades may help Shreveport shore up the city budget.

The Shreveport City Council's public safety committee passed a proposal that would increase the price of rented viewing locations along a parade route.

Currently, the city charges $10 to $20 each, but if the full council approves the plan, the cost will go up to $75.

That would bring in almost $28,000 to help defray the city's costs associated with the parades.
