Shreveport Is Only a 45-Minute Drive From an Old Fashioned Christmas.
Everyone knows that if you want to experience an old-fashioned Christmas you travel to the small town of Natchitoches, Louisiana.
Although the population in Natchitoches is just shy of 20,000, this town is the hub of wonderful Christmas experiences. Did you know visitors come from all over the world to experience an old-fashioned Christmas in one of Louisiana’s oldest cities?
The Natchitoches Christmas Festival is One of the Most Cherished Holiday Events in Louisiana.
I first experienced the Christmas magic in Natchitoches in 2020. Up until then, I had only experienced Natchitoches through a gas station off 49 South. You've probably driven past the French Market, right? They have delicious boudin balls and meat pies. So of course I have experienced that, but what I had not discovered was the joy of Christmas in Natchitoches.
The Natchitoches Christmas Festival is unlike anything I have ever experienced.
You Can Eat the Best Meat Pies in the Middle of the Street.
You can enjoy over 300,000 Christmas lights through the first weekend of January. If you're worried about the lights not being on during the week, the Christmas spirit is very much alive every single day of the week. However, the firework show only happens on Saturday nights.
