Ruston hosts holiday events

By Thomas Stodghill, IV

The team at Experience Ruston is planning several events for the holiday season.

The first event is the Kickoff to Christmas, which will be held Nov. 27. This event is free to the public and it will be held in Railroad Park. This will feature kids’ crafts, holiday music, the annual tree lighting ceremony and a visit from Santa Claus.

Tori Davis, marketing director of Experience Ruston, said the event is fun for everyone.

“Kickoff to Christmas is definitely a community favorite that is a perfect event for the whole family,” Davis said.

The second event to kick off the holiday season is Lincoln Light Up the Pines, which will go from Dec. 2-4. This will be held in Lincoln Parish Park, and it is the parish’s only drive-thru Christmas light display.

Plenty of people are participating this year, including 54 RV’s, Troup 59 Boy Scouts 6-8, 55 vendor spots, and 40 decorating volunteers. Last year, the park saw around 1,800 cars come through the light show.

The cost for Lincoln Light Up The Pines will be $10 for a car and $20 for a bus.
