Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum

From June 20-22, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame will celebrate the Class of 2024 with a series of events in Natchitoches. Events kick off Thursday from 5:00–7:00 p.m. with a FREE reception at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum. This event kicks off the Induction Celebration Weekend as Natchitoches welcomes the 2024 Inductees with a lively happy hour featuring local cuisine and entertainment.

We will also be opening our latest exhibit Showtime: LSU’s Spectacular Pistol Pete that evening. This exhibition explores the life and legacy of Pistol Pete through the images of John Musemeche and Musemeche Photography in Baton Rouge. John Musemeche’s reflections on Maravich also play a key role in filmmaker Drew Tewell’s short documentary about Pistol Pete, “We Were Fans,” which is included in this exhibition. 

Other LSHOF induction weekend events start Friday with a Celebrity Bowling Bash in Alexandria and ends with the 2024 Rockin’ River Fest on the downtown riverbank stage and VIP Taste of Tailgating. On Saturday, the Junior Training Camp will be held on NSU’s campus, and the Round Table Luncheon will be at Riverside Reserve at noon. The day and weekend will culminate with another museum reception at 5:00 p.m. followed by the 7:00 p.m. induction ceremony at the Natchitoches Events Center.
