3 Great Spring Events Around Ruston to Support the Community

Spring has arrived here in Louisiana, which means it is the perfect time of year to head out and enjoy our great community. We have gathered some great spring events around Ruston, Louisiana, that you should add to your calendar.

Ruston Farmers Market

What better way to enjoy spring than with some fresh produce and artisan goods? Every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., locals gather at the farmers market to find the best seasonal fruits and vegetables and hand-crafted items. The market is located at 220 E. Mississippi Ave.

Dine in the Pines

This annual community dinner is always a lot of fun. It is hosted by the Pine Hills Children’s Advocacy Center and raises money to help prevent child abuse in our neighborhood. This year’s dinner will take place on Wednesday, April 1. Contact the center for more information.

Autism Acceptance Festival & 5K

To raise awareness and support of autism support services, this festival and run are hosted by the Autism Society of North LA. This is the first year for the festival, and it’s free to everyone — you do not have to run to attend, but you can sign up online if you want to support by running. The 5K takes place on April 4 at Lincoln Parish Park.

Support the Ruston community by attending any of these events. We at Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac hope to see you there.
