In just a little over six weeks, the world's favorite jolly old elf will make his annual visit to the homes of kids all over to bring the joy of Christmas!

But, before then, Blanchard, Louisiana will ready us for the season with Blanchard's Small Town Christmas!

Saturday, December 11, Blanchard will transform into the "South of the Mason Dixon" version of the North Pole.

The Christmas Parade is set to begin at 10:00 am and at the same time the market will open. Whether you're looking for home decorations, Christmas gift ideas, antiques, or anything holiday related, you're sure to find it.

Make sure to bring the kids as Santa Claus himself will make an appearance at the Blanchard Town Hall beginning at 11:00 am.

And one of the Small Town Christmas favorites is the neighborhood Christmas Caroling which is set to begin at 6:00 pm.  If you're new to the Blanchard area, this alone will prove to you just why your choice to live in this small town was one of your best ideas ever!
