After an August postponement, the Denham Springs Main Street's Boots and Bling Extravaganza was Friday, with guests wearing denim and boots with added touches of bling.

The event, at Forrest Grove Plantation, was a fundraiser for the city's Main Street efforts to preserve the character of its downtown area.

Denham Springs Mayor Gerard Landry served as emcee at the event, which included dinner, drinks, auctions, raffles and entertainment. Guests were served by local celebrity waiters.

Main Street is a volunteer nonprofit organization affiliated with the Louisiana Main Street and National Main Street programs dedicated to preserving and promoting old downtown historic districts. All funds raised will help Main Street continue projects including creating a permanent city history exhibit at Denham Springs Old City Hall.

Main Street has spearheaded the renovation of Old City Hall; initiated the establishment of three small parks in the downtown Antiques Village; placed a directory kiosk, benches and trash receptacles in the downtown district; helped sponsor the annual Christmas in the Village celebration; and founded a free museum at Old City Hall. Main Street also has hosted the annual Chef’s Evening and Wine Tasting Event each Christmas season for 20 years. All of this is done solely with funds raised by the volunteers through various events.
