Zigler Art Museum presents 33rd Annual Festival of Christmas

by Brandon bio | email

JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) – At the Zigler Art Museum in Jennings, a room that normally holds a collection of wildlife art has been transformed into a winter wonderland, as part of the museum's 33rd annual Festival of Christmas.

This year's theme is "A Sugar Plum Christmas."

The display features a gingerbread house, carousel and a Santa's workshop.

Museum director Delores Spear says the Christmas display always draws people into the museum.

"This is a key to get the people in to see the art," Spears said.

 Spears says it takes a lot of hours to get the display looking just right, but she says she had lots of help, including from her daughter-in-law, who decorated 12 of the Christmas trees displayed in the room.

"You have to see it to get the whole concept of what it is," Spears said.

The display is not the only holiday event that will be part of the museum's Christmas celebration.

The museum also has the following events scheduled:

*Tea and Tour of Homes

Sunday, December 6th

1pm-5pm

*An Evening with Santa (pictures with Santa)

Thursday, December 10th

6pm-8pm

*Children's Cookie Village Workshop

Saturday, December 19th

10am-11am

For more information about these events, call the Zigler Art Museum at (337) 824-0114 or visit their website.
