The fall season is ushering in more than just cooler weather and changing leaves, as the people of Leesville are invited to a paint party on Saturday.
Hosted by Wasted Paint’s Sonya Knight, the party will take place at Bubba Que’s BBQ restaurant in Leesville, Louisiana on Saturday, October 6 at 6 p.m.
Knight is a pharmacy tech at Thrifty Way Pharmacy in Leesville, although she’s been painting herself for 12 years. The parties have been under her direction for the past two years, with Knight traveling across Louisiana to entertain paint parties with several different communities.
While mostly private affairs, Knight will be hosting an assortment of parties both public and private over the month of October.
Tickets for the party on October 6 are available now, with $25 for single persons or $40 for couples/buddies.
The price of entry helps to cover the costs of supplies for the party, ranging from the canvas, easels, the wooden designs and paint supplies.
Tickets are being conducted through Eventbrite.com and can be purchased from Wasted Paint’s Facebook page.
Attendees will have a choice between three different wooden designs, hand picked by Knight and Wasted Paint. Those who are attending will need to let Wasted Paint know ahead of time on which design they would like through their Facebook page.
Currently, there are three public parties in the works: Saturday, October 6, Friday, October 12 (which is sold out at the time of this writing) and a Hocus Pocus themed party on Saturday, October 20.
