ST. LANDRY PARISH COURTHOUSE SQUARE
Location: 118 South Court Street, Opelousas
Date: Saturday, November 28, 2015
Time: 5:00 pm

It's been a beloved landmark in the heart of Opelousas for many years. Celebrate the lighting of the Nativity Scene and live oaks at the St. Landry Parish Courthouse Square on Saturday, November 28th at 5:00 pm. This year marks the 62nd anniversary of the Nativity Scene and a special dedication ceremony has been planned. Join the Nativity Scene committee for the official lighting and Christmas carols.

The nativity scene at the St. Landry Parish Courthouse Square first became an idea in the 1940s and made its appearance shortly thereafter. In 1953, a special building was constructed for the nativity scene.

On Sunday, Dec. 6, 1953, the nativity scene on the St. Landry Parish Courthouse Square was unveiled at a special ceremony where Mabel Cools was recognized for soliciting donations used to purchase the nativity figures. Sidney Sandoz was recognized as chairman of the building committee. Robert Dejean served as Master of Ceremonies. Following the unveiling, the downtown Christmas lights were turned on.
