The ‘Spirit of Christmas’ at the Dixie

Beginning with the “Kickoff to Christmas” in Railroad Park when Mayor Ronny Walker flipped the switch to turn on our beautiful new Christmas lights, the Christmas Spirit has begun to find us in Ruston.

You are in for a treat at the Dixie Center for the Arts as Randall Boyd directs the A.E.

It’s about hugging the family members that may not be around the next year.
