The Lighting of the Oaks
November 24 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The Walking Ladies of Opelousas are planning another beautiful presentation at Courthouse Square, the Lighting of the Oaks. Visit downtown Opelousas the Saturday after Thanksgiving when they plug in the lights and light up the square! Santa Claus will also be on site for holiday photos. Other activities include a petting zoo, storytelling, and a choral performance by the Our Lady Queen of Angels Church Choir. Attendees can also stroll around the square to view public art and visit food and craft vendors.
November 24th is also Small Business Saturday, a day to shop for unique gifts while supporting local, small businesses. After the lighting ceremony, attendees can shop local and find discounts in the area stores and boutiques. That evening, more holiday-themed activities are planned in Grand Coteau for Grand Noel.
