Up on the Rooftop

Was that Santa and his sleigh? No! It was Up on the Rooftop, hosted atop the Vantage Tower Parking Garage. Hundreds turned out for what is quickly becoming a new Monroe tradition, thanks in part to the efforts of Monroe Downtown Renaissance.

Choice Brands, Marsala Beverage and Glazer’s were all on hand to ply the crowd with drinks, and some of Monroe’s most popular eateries dished up plate after plate of their best dishes. Shreveport party band FunHouse! kicked it up a notch, while partiers were invited to create memories of the event in the Smile Moore Photo Booth manned by Kelly Moore and her team.

But the centerpiece of the night wasn’t the music or the food. It was the fireworks, which Monroe Renaissance has helped bring back downtown and make bigger and better each year. All proceeds from the Up on the Rooftop event benefit Monroe Renaissance.
