(ACADIAN) Lighting of the way for Papa Noel this evening.
On the First Acadian Coast, St-James (civil) Parish, tonight there will be the lighting of very fancy bonfires on the levees to show Santa the way down the river.
The other story is to provide a guide for the families to find their way to midnight mass.
The other name you may know is St-Jacques de Cabannoce. The church was named for my 6th great grandfather Jacques Cantrelle patron saint. His two son-in-laws were the first Commandants (like in Zorro) during the transfer period from France to Spain.
There should be several news shorts on the building & lighting of the bonfires on the New Orleans & Baton Rouge TV stations.
Some are Baton Rouge
