The Historic Delta Grand Theatre is seeking to cultivate the arts and showcase the best of surrounding parishes with their upcoming event, Downtown Country Christmas!
This family-friendly, holiday-themed event will give local artists, craftspeople and vendors the opportunity to share their work with the community in a traditional Christmas atmosphere.
Those in attendance can expect to see vendors both inside and outside of the Historic Delta Grand Theatre at booths brimming with art, boutique items, Christmas treasure and one-of-a-kind gifts.
The event will also feature magic by Barry Primo, face painting by B&B Creations, pictures with Santa Claus, and cajun comedian, Murry Conque. Conque will act as auctioneer of the "Exploring Parishes in Acadiana" auction.
Gift baskets filled with gift certificates and other goodies from surrounding Acadiana area businesses will be auctioned off to encourage locals to find treasures and adventure while exploring their own backyards.
The event is scheduled for November 30, 2013 beginning at 1 p.m and ending at 5 p.m. The Historic Delta Grand Theatre is located at 120 South Market Street in Opelousas.
