SULPHUR, LA (KPLC-TV) – Thousands of people enjoyed the holiday festivities at Sulphur's Christmas Under the Oaks on Saturday.

The annual festival is considered by many to be one of the biggest celebrations in all of Southwest Louisiana.

Whether it's eating cookies with Santa at the Henning Cultural Center or enjoying the carnival at Heritage Square, there was something for everyone young and old.

"It gives everybody a chance to get together," said Charlotte Spell, a Sulphur resident.

The annual Kiwanis Christmas Parade was held at 3 p.m. That was followed with the Spectacle of Lights, which featured a fireworks display and snow.

The celebration continues on Sunday. The carnival opens at noon and musical bands start performing at 12:30 p.m.
