Christmas Fest 2018


We watched this year’s Christmas Fest Fireworks from the East side on a lawn just above the launch site. Eli and Everett sat right at the edge of the lawn, that is until the first burst went off. Then both fled the area.

Then there was the parade engineer . . .

Earlier I posted a picture of a blind percussionist in the parade, now here’s a shot of two drummers who can’t see!

Fall meets Christmas Dawn at the circle park at Front and Washington Streets in Natchitoches.  We seasonally decorate the city, and here’s a transition.  Christmas lights are up with the fall flowers.  Behind is the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum, and The Pioneer Pub with draft beer and pub food in a historic bank building.
