Pineville, LA… Over seven hundred people converged on the campus of LC Thursday night to witness the first ever lighting of the campus. The boulevard was ceremoniously lit up at 6:00p.m. as onlookers watched and cheered. Area childrens’ choirs performed for event-goers who sipped hot chocoolate and enjoyed the festive atmosphere. Student guides, in biblical dress, led groups around displays where actors told of the events leading up to the blessed miracle of Christ’s birth. Children and adults alike enjoyed the re-enactment of the Christmas story which featured student and faculty talent as well as several live animals.
If you missed Thursday night’s activities, there is still time to come and enjoy the fun. The campus will be open tonight (Friday, November 30) beginning at 6:00 p.m.Â Adult choirs will perform, hot chocolate will be served and tours will continue.

Tonight’s activities are free and open to the public. Merry Christmas from Louisiana College!
