This is our first Christmas in BR - have heard rumblings about some bonfires along the MS on Christmas Eve. Can anyone please give me more information about where we should go to experience this? I have a 5 year old and a 2 year old plus my husband's family will be with us. Thanks!

Down the river (about 45 minutes away) in Grammercy (in St John Parish) and in Lutcher (St James Parish) they have bonfires. Below are some relevant links.

Gramercy and Lutcher are both in St. James Parish. The bonfires are lit on Christmas eve at 7:00pm. The yearly tradition is said to light the way for Santa Clause. People who live along river road will have parties to celebrate the night with lots of food and drinks
