If there’s one thing Natchitoches does best, its the holiday season!

The 92nd Natchitoches Christmas Festival and Parade brought several to the city Dec. 1 as they enjoyed a day of parade watching, with locals including school groups, pageant groups, businesses and dance organizations, as well as Miss Merry Christmas, the Christmas Belles and Christmas Angels, all led by Grand Marshal Wayne Toups.

Toups was also the headliner that evening on the riverbank stage amid festival activities, including vendors, music, a craft market area and a fireworks show.
