Santa is coming to town on a golf cart, and he’s not alone!

In Broussard, Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and their elves parade down Nellies Lane and then onto Wise Street to bring neighbors Christmas cheer.

Families await in front of their houses in anticipation for Santa’s arrival, and they know he’s coming as you can hear Christmas music in the distance.

Santa and his gang stop at different houses, taking pictures, handing out candy canes, and there’s even some dancing!

Mark Gallagher says he and his family started the tradition of greeting neighbors in their Christmas getups throughout the month of December four years ago, and it has grown from there with the participation of fellow neighbors and even the city’s police department.

Gallagher says it’s a nice way to bring the community together and forget about any negativity.

Golf Cart Santa also has his own Facebook page. Check it out here.
