Dressed in ball gowns and the finest formal attire, locals danced the night away during the 13th annual Krewe of Allegro Mardi Gras Ball and Silent Auction to support Ruston Civic Symphony Society and the North Central Louisiana Arts Council on Saturday evening.
King and Queen Bill and Lynne Gnemi presided over the festivities, as The Buddy Terzia Band played musical selections from multiple decades, which quite possibly appealed to the variations of age demographics amongst the crowd.

Walpole came back in December with blueprints showing improved bathroom and concession facilities to be located underneath the home side bleachers, where the old weight room is currently.

This will be the fourth location for the family-owned-and-operated business, which already has three locations in the Dallas area.
