Ruston Gun, Knife, Coin & Boat Show

The Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce will host the Ruston Gun, Knife, Coin & Boat Show August 23-24 at the Ruston Civic Center.

In addition to the variety of guns, knives, scopes, reloads, antique firearms, shooting accessories, jewelry, and gold & silver coins, for the first time, the Ruston show will include boats.
Ludwig Brothers Marine and Wood Marine will have boats both inside the Civic Center and in the south side parking lot. Judy Copeland, chamber president said “It only makes sense to have boats at this show.”

There’s also a delicious side to this event; Lincoln Rotary will host a fundraiser lunch both days. As you may know, monies collected by Rotary are used for several Lincoln Parish needs such as the Backpack Program for elementary students, providing food at Dinner & A Movie at Lincoln Parish Park, giving dictionaries to third graders, handing out ham dinners at Christmas, and more. Pulled pork sandwich with chips & drink $7.
Admission is $7/day or $10/weekend pass. Ages 10 & under and uniformed, active military or emergency responders get in free. Show hours are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sunday. Door prizes will be given out throughout both days, including a grand prize valued at $1,000. Customer parking will be available in the north side parking lot, across from the police station and the adjacent lot behind the civic center.
