    Lighting of the Village

    Every year the village is set aglow with lights and enough holiday cheer for all. The evening begins with an upbeat melody of rhythm by members of the Opelousas High School marching band followed by the official “pulling of the switch,” which will illuminate thousands of lights in the village. Offering a variety of activities for the little ones, the annual lighting event will include a petting zoo, choir music, an obstacle course fun jump, a cupcake decorating station, and an ornament making station where kids can design their own holiday ornaments. Special guests for the event include Frosty the Snowman, Queen Elsa, Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Elmo and Balloon Man Rick Hessler. And of course, Santa Clause will be on site and holiday photos with Santa will be offered.

    The Village stays lit through January 1, 2016 for the public to enjoy.

    Country Antique Store Estate Sale

    Petite Rouge Antiques and Estate Sales is holding a four-day estate sale event in historic Washington, Louisiana. Formerly a country store, the building is full of antiques including a very large collection of iron collectibles, chandeliers, kitchenware, apothecary items, mid-century furniture, pianos, soda bottles, books, comics, and more. 

    The old country store on Highway 71 was first purchased by Hazel and Herbert Artigue in 1953. Hazel borrowed $50 to open her small grocery selling milk, bread, and basic household items. In the early 60s, the store closed due to Hazel's health. In the late 60's the Artigue family struggled financially after Herbert was injured on the job while working in construction on the Mississippi River Bridge. The couple needed a way to make ends meet and decided to combine Hazel's love of antiques with Hebert's passion for woodworking. Making repairs for a living, the Artigue's were finally able to save enough money to attend auctions. Soon Hazel and Hebert's small grocery evolved becoming an antiques and upholstery shop, their dream business. In the 1980's Hebert passed, but Hazel continued to visit the shop to clean and arrange their collection. Hazel passed in 2012, and the couple's collection is now open to antiquers who treat these treasures with the same love and care that the Artigue family once did.
