Oh summertime, long days, short nights, warm weather, pool time, ice cream, road trips, and sunny days. One sunny, sunflower day particularly comes to mind. This June, take a short road trip just north of Shreveport to see the Sunflower Trail and Festival. Head north on the Old Dixie-Shreveport Road until you reach a little town called Gilliam, Louisiana. You will be amazed to see thousands and thousands of sunflowers in bloom, turning the landscape into something out of an unforgettable dream. The 23rd Annual Sunflower Festival will be held on June 18th from 9 am to 3 pm.
