The 2012 Opelousas Children’s Christmas Parade, is set for tonight, and we know you'll get in the Christmas spirit with this wonderful parade! What's not to love about colorfully lit floats, high school marching bands, loveable cartoon characters and of course Santa Claus.

The parade will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the parking lot of St. Landry Catholic Church on North Main Street and will roll south through historic downtown Opelousas ending on Creswell Lane.

Merry Christmas from Opelousas, ya'll!
