Committee member George Choplin said that it's been eight years since the St. Lucy Festival of Lights has happened and the city is hoping that this tradition is able to be continued every year.
"I tell you right now, if you come out and visit, you're gonna see something special in St. Martinville," said Choplin. "This little community is so close-knit we know how to have a good time and I think it's time that we go ahead and try to at least enjoy life."
