They are tethered to the blocks wrapped in green.

But oneโ€™s moorings must have gotten undone.

Because it went sailing away Saturday and likely made for some tense moments for some people.

However, a later post by Shreveport Regional Arts Council indicates the errant inflatable, part of Rainbow City, was found within a couple hours โ€” at Barksdale Air Force Base.

Thatโ€™s across Red River and some 3-4 miles east-southeast of the park in Shreveport.

Now Rainbow City, an interactive display, can continue in its entirety from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day through Dec. 8.

Highlights

Sundays: free artists in the park and, at 3 p.m., free yoga in the park

Tuesdays from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.: free healthy recipes from Ochsner LSU Healthโ€™s Academic Medical Center.

Wednesdays from 11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m.: food trucks and a one-mile walk

Thursdays: weekend arts market opens; free drum circle with Ron Hardy from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Fridays: weekend arts market; live music dance nights from 7-10 p.m. Admission to the latter is $10.

Saturdays: free guided exercise from Ochsner LSU Health from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; free family fun activities from RedBall Oxygen from noon-4 p.m.

So we have the LSU/Alabama game on in Rainbow City in Caddo Common Park outdoors on a beautiful day.
