Downtown Christmas in July
Downtown Lafayette Unlimited is bringing some Christmas cheer to downtown! Through the month of July, we are offering special early bird rates for our Christmas Tree Extravaganza trees, Christmas cypress tree wraps, and Christmas wreaths that will be displayed through the month of December in the downtown area.
Downtown is rising
Downtown Lafayette is undergoing a revitalization that is bringing new businesses and residents to the city center. Downtown’s central location, built-in infrastructure, and its role as the cultural and business center of the region has led to significant development activity in recent years, including more than 100 residential units currently under construction.
