Natchitoches Parish Relay for Life will host the “Relay on the Cane” Drive Thru Luminaria Night Friday, July 17 from 8-9 p.m. on the downtown riverbank.

Vehicle line-up will start at 300 Church St., the government parking lot next to the Sheriff’s Department. Participants will dedicate luminaria bags in memory of or in honor of a loved one who has courageously fought cancer and those who bravely continue their fight. Visit and select “Dedicate a Luminaria.

The drive-through luminary event will also be broadcast on KZBL FM on 100.7 and KDBH 95.7 FM for those that wish to hear about ACS/survivor stories as people pass through.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) is also in need of canned food donations for the Cane River Food Pantry. Canned goods can be dropped off before and during the event on Friday.
