It's like a giant pre-party for the big celebration this December.

Of course we know it's not Christmas and surely not time for Christmas in the Sky, but we're ready to part! Tonight is the official kickoff and theme announcement party for Christmas in the Sky. It's a free event and open to the public. Don't worry about dressing up, just come as you are.

Happening at the Shreveport Regional Arts Council beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Come out to hear what this year's theme is going to be and learn what Christmas in the Sky is all about. It's an event that has been named the "Best Gala in the World" according to Special Events International Magazine.

The actual Christmas in the Sky will take place on Saturday, December 10 at 7 p.m. at Harrah's Louisiana Downs. Proceeds from the event go to the Shreveport Regional Arts Council.
