LARC’s Acadian Village hosted its second annual sneak peek of Noel Acadien au Village tonight.

A limited number of tickets were sold, which allow people to see the fantastic light display at Acadian Village a couple of days ahead of the regular opening.

“We really tried to capture every aspect that makes Noel Acadien au Village so great, and bundle it up for the public to experience at one low cost,” said Erin Shedlof, operations manager of Acadian Village. “We are thrilled to bring Public First Look back this year and even more excited Acadiana loves it.”

Regular hours start on Friday, November 30 and run through December 23. Every night, weather permitting, the lights are on from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m.

There are 500,000 lights, but there also are animated displays, carnival rides, photos with Santa, food, shopping and nightly live entertainment.
