 Light Up The Lake Christmas Festival
Time: Noon.-7:15 p.m.

What is Christmas without cups of hot apple cider, colored lights, carols, and a side of boudin? Experience the spirit of a Cajun Christmas during the 27th annual Southwest Louisiana Christmas Lighting Festival. Throughout December, there are so many concerts, performances, parades, and festivities; it’s hard to even count them all! Saturday, Dec. 7, join Lake Charles for Light Up the Lake, where everyone can enjoy a holiday parade, toys, games and activities at Santa's Workshop, a lighted boat parade, a gingerbread house contest and a glittering fireworks display over shimmering Lake Charles. For more information on the above parades and festivals, view the listings on the Calendar of Events page in this guide. Call the bureau at (337) 436-9588 or visit for more information or check out our 2013 Christmas page.
