Sulphur Centennial, Iowa Rabbit Festival, & rain on the way

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on today.

The City of Sulphur shows us how to celebrate 100 years. We're there as the Centennial celebrations continue.

Plus, folks got up early to keep Lake Charles clean. It's part of the "Adopt A Spot" program, where volunteers pick up trash twice a year. KPLC's Erica Bivens has this story.

And hundreds of people took the challenge to get moving this morning. We'll have more tonight on the "Start Walking" program and how it hopes to combat obesity.

And the rabbits return to Iowa for the 28th Annual Rabbit Festival. From good music to tasty eats, KPLC's Haley Rush takes in all the festival has to offer.

It held off as long as it could, but the rain has started to come down in parts of Southwest Louisiana. Meteorologist Zack Fradella has your forecast.

We'll see you tonight at Six for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
