SRAC's biennial blow-out, Christmas in the Sky, takes place Sat, Dec 11, La Downs, supports arts programs and artists in region

Some 2,000 guests will motor to Harrah's La Downs on Sat, Dec 11, to see one of the most spectacular parties in the region: the biennial Christmas in the Sky.

Harrah's Louisiana Downs will be transformed, says Julia Foley. Beatlemania will envelope the guests from parking lot through 2 floors of super-colorful rooms. Beatlemania will rock the clock from 7 pm to 3 am.

To benefit regional arts activities and artists, Shreveport Regional Arts Council and a large team of volunteers create 16 auction areas, 10 entertainment stages, 12 themed bars, and 11 themed hot and cold buffets.

The 2008 event generated a half million dollars to support SRAC programs throughout Northwest Louisiana, says Foley.

If you love the arts and an evening of well-dressed sensory overload, call SRAC or get tickets online. They're $250 each. Not to worry: remarks overheard after recent editions of this over-the-top event indicate that the party is worth every dollar to the patron class.
