- Holiday Trail of Lights Six cities in two states have come together to organize the Holiday Trail of Lights. Shreveport, Bossier City and Natchitoches, La. and Jefferson, Marshall and Kilgore, Texas have partnered to bring tourists into each other’s cities. “It just allows us to be stronger as a unit, rather than individually,” said Nikki Neal with the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau. “It offers so much more to our holiday visitors. When we come together as a trail, families can come through and visit more than one city in a night if they choose."
