Every Christmas Eve, many Louisianans construct huge bonfires, a tradition of the early Cajun settlers that symbolizes lighting the way for Papa Noel. Come join in the holiday festivities as you watch the more than 100 brilliant bonfires located along the levees of the Mississippi River in St. James and St. John Parishes. In the past, logs were always shaped like cones for the bonfires. Today, however, people are very creative in designing a variety of shapes such as crawfish, alligators and steamboats. People enjoy watching the lighting and burning of the bonfires and come out in droves to see this spectacle that begins at 7 PM on Christmas Eve. This event is safe for everyone because the local fire departments will have personnel onsite to ensure that the fires stay under control.
