SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Rockets over the Red Festival brought out thousands as both sides of the river (of Shreveport and Bossier City) partied for Christmas. Giant Christmas trees, food live performances and even a special visit from Santa himself helped ring in the Christmas season.
Several families came out to have a good time and start the Christmas season.
“We never miss the Rocket festival,” Shay Johnson says. “My little ones love to come out and see Santa and the fireworks.” Santa and Mrs. Claus made a special appearance before they head back to the North Pole, giving families one last time to get those holiday pictures.
At the end of the night a firework show lit up the sky!
