Lighting Ceremony: Contraband Room (2nd Floor), from 5 p.m – 6 p.m. Featured entertainment for the eventing will be teen Zydeco artist, Kaleb LeDay, the Barbe High Show Choir, Gumbeaux Gator and The Girl Scouts. To top it all off, at 6 p.m., the front lawn of the Civic Center will be lighted officially kicking off the Christmas Season in SWLA.
