We hope your plans won't take you too far away for the next few days because there are some great local anniversary festivities on tap.
McNeese State University is celebrating 75 years of excellence with a personal touch. Thursday night at 7 o'clock is the Homecoming Parade down Ryan Street followed by a pep rally, live music and fireworks at Cowboy Stadium at 9 o'clock.
The McNeese celebrations continue Friday evening with the Diamond Jubilee from 6 to 9 o'clock at the Alumni Center. Log onto 75th.mcneese.edu to buy tickets for that and to check out more planned events throughout the day and evening Saturday.
Also Saturday we here at KPLC invite you to join us for a block party to celebrate our own 60th anniversary of service to Southwest Louisiana. It's absolutely free from 10-am to 2-pm Saturday on Bilbo Street between Division and Ryan right here in beautiful Downtown Lake Charles. We'll have food, drinks, live music, giveaways and tours of the station so we hope you'll come pass a good time and maybe take a few selfies with your KPLC friends.
McNeese and KPLC, celebrating big anniversaries together and proud to be part of building a Better Southwest Louisiana.
