It's a Christmas yarn-bombing! And Northwestern State University art students say..."We did it!" Students in three fiber courses yarn-bombed the city's Tricentennial Park, but they had Mayor Lee Posey's permission to do it. The colorful work is only temporary...and meant to spread Christmas cheer even farther into west Natchitoches.

Yarn bombing is a type of street art intended to personalize public spaces and draw interest to knitting and crochet. The work will remain in the park until January 14th, 2013.
