It’s a holiday spectacle that hundreds of thousands of visitors take part in every year. It’s Louisiana’s Holiday Trail of Lights. As the name suggests it’s an opportunity for you to do a little traveling,  enjoy some family time, view some amazing lights, and be home to sleep in  your own bed.

The Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights spotlights different festivals being held in Alexandria-Pineville, Monroe-West Monroe, Shreveport-Bossier, Minden and Natchitoches. While these destinations might require a little bit of driving, they are well worth it when you arrive.

People can plan to try to go to everything. It goes on for several weekends, and people can catch different events depending on what their interest is.

Those comments were made by Executive Director of the Webster Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau, Lynn Dorsey. Dorsey spoke to the Louisiana Radio Network. She went on to explain a little more about some of the festivals.

Minden’s celebration is based on a German celebration that is similar to Mardi Gras.

We have thousands and thousands of beautiful Christmas lights and Christmas displays, and we line downtown with life-size nutcrackers.

In Nachitoches the Christmas Festival got underway this past weekend. Natchitoches Main Street Manager, Samantha Bonnette told LRN that when the sun goes down the lights go on.

The culmination of the event is the turning on of hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights and fireworks over Cane River Lake at 7pm. So we invite everyone to come out and spend the day with us.

Many of these festivals and lighting displays will be active through the holiday season.
