The folks at Newk’s celebrated turning three in a big way, with the help of friends from the Monroe Fire Department and PAWS of Northeast Louisiana. All day May 24, visitors enjoyed entertaining games, a photo booth, and complimentary snow cones, all in celebration of the Monroe eatery’s third anniversary.

Also during the day, customers got a chance to visit with four-legged friends, thanks to PAWS, which was on site to encourage animal adoption and rescue. Meanwhile, the Monroe Fire Department showed off fire trucks, posed for pictures with kids, and led kids through the department’s smoke trailer, a mobile training facility designed to show kids the way out of fires.

Several customers walked away with door prizes, ranging from free food to an authentic Blue Dog screen print by George Rodrigue. Musical stylings were provided by Monroe band the Ego Eaters.
