It's the holiday season which means people all over Southwest Louisiana are putting up their Christmas lights. The City of Lake Charles and the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury are also getting in the act.

We reported to you guys earlier this week that the City Of Lake Charles has decided to make their "Light Up the Lake" festival now a two day festival with Fireworks and the lighting of the lights happening on Sunday.

Now the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury has announced that they will hold a lighting ceremony for the inaugural lighting of the Historic Calcasieu Parish Courthouse.

Tom Hoefer with the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury released this about the event:
