LAFAYETTE  — Now that Thanksgiving is over, Christmas is coming fast in Downtown Lafayette.

Lafayette's Christmas Tree Extravaganza is back.

Tree decorators filled Parc International today to decorate their trees and hopefully win a $500 prize to give to a charity of their choice.

Angele Adams, a participant in the event, told KATC, " It's a competition, but really it's more like a showcase. But it's my understanding that if you win the competition, people come down and vote you have the qr codes if you win. It's 500 dollars that go to a charity that you pick."

Attakapas Collective also has a tree for this year's event.
