Congratulations to Old Fashioned Christmas Festival Raffle Winners
LEESVILLE, La.-- The City of Leesville would like to congratulate the two winners of the Merchants and Farmers Bank and Barksdale Federal Credit Union Cash Raffle at the Old Fashioned Christmas Festival December 12, 2015.

Ben Zeeman and Gabriela Nazario were the big winners, taking home $250 cash each! Customers that made purchases at any of the participating Main Street Merchants brought their receipts to the City of Leesville booth, filled out a raffle ticket, and stayed around for the parade to see if they won.

There was a good turnout for the now annual festival. The City is looking forward to expanding the event next year.
