Once again this year, the city of Natchitoches is getting ready to kick off the Christmas season with the Festival Of Lights.
The Big 85th Annual festival with the parade is Saturday, December 3rd. Then, there are mini-festivals every weekend in December.
But this weekend is when activities get started with "Turn On The Holidays." The Festival Of Lights opening ceremony is this Saturday at 6:30pm, with free fireworks at 7pm.
