Calling for vendors

NCLAC, Tech prepare for ‘Bazaar Experiment’

If Ruston did not exist, there probably wouldn’t be a Louisiana Tech University. If Tech didn’t exist, there probably wouldn’t be much of a Ruston. In order to bridge the two sub-communities together, The Bazaar Experiment, a family friendly festival type event, will be held in Downtown Ruston from 11 a.m. until midnight April 20. And to make the event a success, the bazaar needs vendors.

“We stand for 27 hours because there are 27 million slaves out there who need our help.”
