There is a new holiday spirit at the Red River Parish Courthouse. Holiday decorations and lights are all new for 2017.
The Journal spotted crews putting up the new decorations this past week. For months there had been talk of removing the old lights that had been on the courthouse for years. An agreement between the police jury and the chamber made the new look possible.
First the old lights, and all the glue that made them stick to the building was removed. Recently new lights were mounted. There is also new garland ringing the columns out front.
