It's a Wonderful Life in Lafayette

Join us for “It’s a Wonderful Life in Lafayette” Holiday Celebration on December 7, 2018 from 4:00-6:30pm at Lafayette’s Plaza Park, located in downtown Lafayette.

 

Free admission! Fun, family-friendly celebration –  tree lighting, live music, community sing-a-long, crafts — and this Santa’s “sleigh” is Lafayette’s historic fire truck, Old Betsy!

 

Arrive early and plan to stay! This fun and festive event includes visits with Santa, official holiday tree lighting ceremony, one-of-a-kind photo ops with the Town Hall Elves, live musical entertainment, crafts, holiday treats and a holiday sing-a-long.

 

Festivities begin at 4 p.m. Santa is scheduled to parade along Golden Gate Way on Lafayette’s treasured Old Betsy fire engine, along with a police escort. This caravan will start from the Lafayette Historical Society and arrive at Lafayette Plaza Park at 4:30 p.m. A must-not-miss for the little ones!

 

Throughout the event there will be activities for the kids, light refreshments and lots of photo opportunities, including posing with Santa and Old Betsy and the Town Hall Elves. Where else can someone take such a fun holiday photo?

 

There will also be live entertainment throughout the event, including local student musicians and singers.

 

Already a popular Lafayette holiday tradition, the “It’s a Wonderful Life in Lafayette” holiday event is designed as a time to share holiday cheer as we celebrate this wonderful community we live in. This includes enjoying the beautiful holiday drawings created by Lafayette’s many 3rd graders that will be exhibited at the event.

 

The “It’s a Wonderful Life in Lafayette” event is presented by the Lafayette Chamber, and sponsored by local Lafayette Realtor The Dana Green Team and Branagh Development, who together are also hosting the environmentally-friendly downtown Lafayette twinkle lights for the 2018 Holiday Season.
