NATCHITOCHES, La. - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Natchitoches and it's not even Thanksgiving yet. But that's expected since the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana Purchase territory is also known as the City of Lights.
The Spirit of Christmas is alive and well all over the ArkLaTex. So many towns want to share their highlights, from the lights, to the the shops, and of course, the restaurants. At 6:30 p.m. on KTBS we will showcase different towns between November and December. On November 18th Jan Elkins, Patrick Dennis, and Rick Rowe will be in Jefferson, TX, with Santa and the Candlelight Tour of Homes. On November 19, they will be in Natchitoches, LA. with lights on the Cane River. Then on December 1 the trio will be in Marshall, TX to light up the courthouse. December 3, Mt. Pleasant will be the location for the Spirit of Christmas half hour special where they have major lights all over town. A library card from Shreve Memorial Library could be the best Christmas gift you give your child. On December 8th, we’ll talk with Librarians in that special. The final Spirit of Christmas half hour special will be in Homer, LA in the town square on December 10th. Be sure to watch on KTBS at 6:30 p.m. on these dates for the Spirit of Christmas half hour specials.
