It's festival season here in Kiss Country and one of our favorites is this weekend!  Time for the "Louisiana Peach Festival" in Ruston.  It'll run Friday from 5 to 10pm and Saturday from 8am to 10pm in front of the Ruston Civic Center.  Friday features a pet show and peach-eating contest in Railroad Park, then a concert on the festival stage featuring Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band.  Saturday's events include the parade, a golf tournament, the "Diaper Derby", and a concert Saturday night with Louisiana's own Sammy Kershaw.

Plus, there are approximately 200 artisans and vendors, all in one location! You’ll find merchandise and re-sale vendors at Trenton Street Marketplace on the front lawn of the Ruston City Hall, and hand-made arts and crafts both inside and outside the Civic Center. Trenton Street Marketplace and the Civic Center is open Saturday only.  Get the whole calendar of events at
