The official arrival of Santa to Lafayette will take place on Sunday, December 2nd in the annual Sonic Christmas Parade. The parade will begin this year at 1:00pm in downtown Lafayette at the Jefferson Street underpass and will conclude in the Oil Center.

Kids should bring their letters to Santa to the parade where they will be collected and mailed to the North Pole. The Sonic Christmas Parade, a perfect opportunity to get into the holiday spirit.
