SWLA knows how to get in the Christmas spirit.  Join us for a Cajun Christmas in Lake Charles.  The city hosts its annual Cajun Christmas festival throughout the month of December. Shop til you drop and expect to have tons of fun at Mistletoe and Moss Holiday Market, soak up the arts with a holiday concert by the Lake Charles Symphony, or take in the ballet by the Lake Charles Civic Ballet and other performances from local theater companies.

It even snows during the annual Christmas Under the Oaks/Holiday House in Sulphur, LA beginning Dec 5th-7th! Have some Community Coffee and breakfast with Santa at the Christmas under the Oaks, plus don't miss the Under the Oaks Balloon Parade at 3 pm and many other Christmas parades in the surrounding communities.  Beginning December 6th, Acts Theater presents White Christmas Every Sunday, Friday, Saturday until December 15, 2013

The fun doesn't stop there, enjoy all the holiday festivities like a carriage ride along Lakeshore Drive under a lighted oak tree canopy.  The Light Up the Lake Christmas Celebration in Lake Charles will take place on December 7th from Noon.-7:15 p.m. complete with thousands of lights for the whole family to enjoy.  Don't miss the Christmas street parade through downtown Lake Charles and lots of free events from Santa’s Workshop, Lighting Ceremony and Lighted Boat Parade with a fireworks finale!
