Santa is busy making his pre-holiday preparations and that includes getting ready for his close-up.
Each year, the Lafourche Parish Public Library provides families with an opportunity for their children to take free photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus. This year is no exception.
Children can sit on Santa’s lap, talk about their Christmas wishes, and take a free photo with Santa. In some cases, Mrs. Claus will visit to read holiday stories to children.
Drop by these branches to visit with Santa to take a photo:
- Golden Meadow Branch, 1403 N. Bayou Drive: December 11, 5 to 6 p.m. Bring your camera.
