Lights were beautiful. Recommend buying tickets ahead of time. Bypass long lines. They have an amusement park area with rides. Great experience for family to take lots of pictures. Great history museum if not in the holiday season.

An amazing array of 500,000 Christmas lights. A typical Acadian village with authentic buildings. Music and dancing,too! Owned by Louisiana Association of Retarded Citizens. Highly recommend not only during the Christmas season but all year round. Enjoy yourself and support a very worthy group.
