Next, on Monday, Dec 2nd, the KCS Holiday Express rolls into Pineville! It will stop from 4-8ish or as long as there are kids that want to see the train. It will stop just behind the Louisiana College baseball field on Melrose Street. Admission is free and open to the public. There will be caroling and a jumbo inflatable Movie Screen playing some of your Christmas favorites.
Then the event that everyone is waiting for… it’s the Pineville Christmas Parade! The Parade rolls on Friday night, the 13th of December, at 7pm. It will be full of local high school bands, dance teams, businesses, elected officials and much more. Over 125 entries will roll from Hospital Boulevard on Main Street up towards Trotter Plaza where it takes a left on Claiborne and ends headed towards Pineville High School.
This looks to be our biggest event of the year; hope to see you there! Stay tuned for many more events on the way in 2020!
