Festival of Lights means early visit from Santa

Festival of Lights - lighting of the tree

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Those who have been to the Festival of Lights know that a 30-foot Christmas tree is lit and then a fire truck drives Santa to town.

Jolly Ol' St. Nick will step off the fire truck, say hello and head to the Old State Capitol.

The Old Governor's Mansion, which is located on North Boulevard, will also have pictures of the kids with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Just pay a $12 donation to the Historical Foundation for that little click of a Christmas classic.
