Special to the Minden Press-Herald
Saturday, December 1, was a perfect outdoor family day at the Sarepta Christmas Festival, starting with a multitude of tasty food and creative craft vendors; a fantastic car show; a taste bud tingling Chili Cook-off; all day entertainment with exceptional bands and talented singers; three bouncy houses and loads of children activities; a Silent Auction with 132 items due to the generosity of caring individuals and many businesses; Babs Slack’s reading of the Cajun Christmas; and Santa, himself, listening to “Wish lists.”
The Guitar autographed by Trace Adkins was won by Steve and Jan Crowe. The Trivia Contest top winner was Debbie Wood.
Charlotte Garza answered all the questions correctly as well, but since she won last year, she got a consolation acknowledgment. Still available for Christmas gifts are a few cookbooks -“Sarepta’s Cooks, Past and Present.”
Bistineau Blasters fireworks, at dark, were spectacular! The entire day was truly a family affair “thanks” to all the sponsors and those who gave of their time and energies!
Make plans now to attend the Sarepta Christmas Festival to be held on December 7, 2019! For any information, contact 318-847-4333.
