Pineville, LA…Louisiana College invites the community to celebrate Christmas with the faculty, staff and students of Louisiana College as they host the  4th annual “Follow the Star—A Louisiana College Christmas” on Thursday and Friday, December 2nd and 3rd.  The two night event is a time of family fun, complete with thousands of Christmas lights, hot cocoa, crafts for the children and live reenactment of the Christmas story.

 

Additionally, LC’s Art Department will be having their annual Christmas Gallery Show and Sidewalk Sale in the Weathersby Fine Arts Building Gallery.  This year in conjunction with the art sale, the Art Club will be demonstrating an iron pour on Friday night.

 

New this year is the “Christmas on a Hill” musical performance directed by Dr. Fred Guilbert, Chair of the LC music department. The special musical will feature various LC singing ensembles including: The Voices of LC, Chorale, The Louisianians, and solo performances. “Christmas on a Hill” will be performed twice each night of Follow the Star in the Martin Performing Arts Center Theater.
