Mistletoe and Moss Honored as an 'STS Top 20 Event'

LAKE CHARLES, La (November 10, 2014) ----The Southeast Tourism Society (STS) recently honored Mistletoe and Moss as a Top 20 Event for the month of November. Each year, Christmas shoppers get a festive jump on the holiday rush with a vast array of selections from approximately 80 specialty shops from Southwest Louisiana and around the nation at the Mistletoe and Moss Holiday Market. The event includes live entertainment, a preview party and silent auction, shopping, and breakfast with Santa, all basked in a glittering ambiance. This year's event is scheduled for November 20-22, 2014.

The Southwest Louisiana Convention and Visitors Bureau is a member of STS, an organization that promotes travel to and within the southeastern part of the United States. The bureau nominates all area fairs, festivals and events quarterly. The STS Top 20 Events marketing program highlights the "best of the best" from submitted entries.

Events are selected from each of the following STS member states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The Top 20 Events publication is sent to over 1,600 newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV stations, AAA publications and others. The combined circulation of organizations using the publication is well into the millions. Therefore, the potential media coverage of these events has made the Top 20 Events list a coveted honor.
