The organizer said it is a great way to promote the local economy with creativity.

“The idea first came to me when I visited Festival International in Lafayette. I noticed, by going there as a spectator and now executive director for the Revel, how much that downtown community supports that festival and how it supports its downtown community. It’s a very symbiotic relationship. It seemed to help both out in a great way,” said Red River Revel Executive Director Logan Lewis.

The Red River Revel runs October 1 through the 9.
