50 Mile Trail of Treasure Rescheduled for Oct. 17

For the first time in the history of the 50 Mile Trail of Treasure event, organizers had to call a rain date due to the forecast in our area for Hurricane Delta. The weather ended up being beautiful and sunny to the dismay of all. The silver lining of our clouds was to grant vendors and treasure hunters additional time to prepare for one of DeSoto Parish’s favorite events. Booths are scheduled to set up around 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. with many choosing to stay longer.
