Kilgore Getting New 'Main Street' Banners

Downtown Kilgore is getting thirty new Main Street Banners to boost up the downtown scene.

Kilgore's downtown main street will be lined with new banners with the city logo on them. Officials hope the new banners will add to the spirit of downtown Kilgore.

Fallon Burns, the manager of main street program says, "We had a wonderful artist who really captured the spirt of what we wanted in out logo and we knew we had to wait on these banners because we wanted our logo on the banners. We had no idea the logo would be the perfect shape."

City officials hope to have all the signs up by August.
