The holidays have arrived, and we love our annual traditions here in Acadiana. This will be the 25th year for the  Oil Center Festival of Lights, and this wonderful event will be held on November 30 from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm in the heart of the Oil Center in Lafayette.

Admission to the festival is free, and families can enjoy lighted displays, photos with Santa, live entertainment on three stages, horse-drawn carriage rides, live ice sculpting, letter writing to Santa, face painting, carnival games, and food and beverages from local vendors. Family packs are available in advance for food or beverages, or several other activities that require tickets.

Free parking will be available at the Burdin Riehl parking garage and around the Oil Center. Paid parking will be at the Grant Mollett Medical Plaza at the corner of South College and Heymann Blvd.

Don't miss this Lafayette holiday tradition for the entire family!
