    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.
