The 66th annual Peach Festival took place June 24-25th this year, and it was one for the books. Festival-goers enjoyed everything from arts and crafts to a parade and a rodeo. Kids’ activities were onsite as well as an antique car show, sporting tournaments, and even a dinosaur exhibit. Live music was provided by the Chee-Weez and Dylan Scott among others. Along with music, activities included an Art Exhibit, Peach hunt, BMX and Skateboard Show, Baby photo contest, arts and crafts show and tons of vendors to shop from! The Louisiana Peach Festival celebrates peachy goodness and highlights the explosive popularity of Ruston peaches, which have been a staple of life in Lincoln Parish since the late 1930s.
