After being postponed due to bad weather last week, the magic of Christmas has finally its way to Crowley.

Visitors enjoyed a variety of performances, holiday shopping, photos with Santa, and more at the Christmas in Crowley event held Tuesday. An antique fire truck was also on display, and families could participate in various crafts and even take a tractor ride.

The event was held on North Parkerson Avenue between the court circle and Second Street.

Social distancing and masks were required.

This year the city is also bringing the holiday to life with a giant advent calendar. The First National Bank of Louisiana building on Parkerson Ave. has been transformed into a countdown to Christmas. Residents can visit the building each day to watch the countdown. Read more here.

Mayor Tim Monceaux said Tuesday's event was the product of many hard-working individuals.

"There's so many people who were instrumental into making this happen and making it as beautiful as it is," Monceaux commented. "It's just a lot of people, a lot of traffic having a great time. It looks like a Hallmark scene and it's just a nice time."
