Associates at Brookdale Lafayette, along with family members and community residents, treated residents on Tuesday to a surprise Christmas in July parade.

Employees dressed in holiday attire and the event featured special appearances by the Grinch and even Santa Claus himself.

Family members drove by in decorated vehicles. Those attending were also able to participate in several events.

Staff says the parade helped to put smiles on residents' faces.

"Our mission statement is 'Enriching the lives of those we serve,' and so by us doing this, this is enriching their lives," explained Sales and Marketing Manager Raysha Boudreaux. "They have been so excited for all of the activities that we've done throughout the day and then this parade just was putting the icing on the cake and was the grand finale for them."
