Christmas Tree Display at Shreveport Regional Airport
The Shreveport Airport Authority and five Shreveport and Bossier City schools have partnered together to create a Christmas tree display at Shreveport Regional Airport this holiday season. Students were asked to make ornaments that were airport or aviation themed. Each tree features a different classroom’s ornament collection. The Christmas tree display is located on the pedestrian cross bridge at the top of the escalators at Shreveport Regional Airport.
Participating schools include Ridgewood Middle School, Riverside Elementary, Claiborne Elementary and Southern Hills Elementary in Shreveport and Platt Elementary in Bossier City. The Christmas trees were donated to Shreveport Regional Airport by The Home Depot. The Christmas trees and ornaments will be on display through New Year’s Day.
"These Christmas tree decorations come from the community and celebrate the rich history of the airport. We hope by bringing them to the public to view, it brings not only holiday cheer but the warmth of the season. It's our way of wishing everyone happy holidays."
Also on display is a 1954 Chevrolet 3600 Truck in the lower terminal level. Originally used as a maintenance vehicle at the airport, the truck is now used for display purposes. The truck has been decorated for the holidays with lighted Christmas trees in the bed of the truck. The truck is the oldest vehicle in the City of Shreveport’s fleet. The vehicle will also be on display through New Year’s Day.
