There was lots of dancing and music tonight in Opelousas as the children's Christmas parade rolled through town tonight.

The new route this year started near Le Vieux Village and ended at the Yambilee Festival grounds.

Even Santa made the long trek down to Opelousas for the night!

Parade-goer Craig Andrus said, "For the kids to come out and enjoy themselves, to have candy and enjoy the beads, and make sure that the families enjoy themselves...but mostly it's for the kids to enjoy and get a chance to meet Santa. Ho ho ho!"
