The Leesville Main Street District is the place to be for many annual events in Leesville each year. 3rd Street is the home to the exciting Mardi Gras Parade and Christmas Parade, each sponsored by the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce. The Rodeo Parade trots through each year in October. Also in October is Witch Way to Main Street, a family friendly trick-or-treating event. The Lulu Street Racers speed down 3rd Street the last Saturday of October. The Leesville Main Street Gumbo Cook-off tests the skills of local culinary masters. A new event is the Leesville Main Street Old Fashioned Christmas Festival. The day of the Christmas Parade residents fill downtown to shop at the local merchants, see what vendors have to offer, and enjoy great food. Mayfest is the premiere event in downtown Leesville each year. This award winning festival features live music, vendors, and more.
