Thanksgiving is right around the corner but it's never too early to think about the Christmas season which will be here before you know it.

The city of Lake Charles is gearing up for the Christmas holiday with their annual Light Up The Lake celebration. It is scheduled for Saturday, December 7th, 2019 at the Lake Charles Civic Center.

The events includes a parade going through the streets of downtown Lake Charles. There will also be a lighted boat parade on the lake on the backside of the Lake Charles Civic Center.
