And the American Idol winner is……Laine Hardy. We’re just practicing early.
Are you ready to partty with Laine Hardy? We Are!
The Livingston Parish native made the Top 3 of American Idol. Now, we celebrate TONIGHT!
Sheriff Jason Ard says, ‘We have quite a party taking shape! We are anticipating over 10,000 people. Because of the influx of screaming fans – we do have to have some rules in place to make this relatively short event — as impactful as possible! The world will be watching! Know that your Livingston Parish leaders, our law enforcement partners & our local businesses have been working together to host a party that is safe, fun-filled & family-oriented! Thank you, Livingston Parish for your patience & your cooperation.’
