The Northwest Louisiana Walk of Stars is the offspring of a Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce initiative which started in 1997 and has since evolved into a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Walk of Stars was created to recognize individuals from Northwest Louisiana who are distinguished in their professional and/or civic endeavors or who have brought recognition and attention to the area, and who have been involved in those activities for at least five years. The honorees may come from any profession or industry including, but not limited to athletics, music, acting, business, politics, education, and community service. The Walk of Stars is located under the Texas Street Bridge in downtown Shreveport's Red River District. The street address of the Red River District is 450 Clyde Fant Parkway in Shreveport.
