Holiday festivities begin with bonfire, live music
A crowd gathered Saturday night for Choudrant’s annual Christmas in the Village. Bonfires blazed, twinkling lights were lit and live music filled the air at the corner of U.S. Highway 80 and La. 145. Practissing 4 Heaven, David and Karen Hodnett and performers from Anchor Tabernacle and Bethel churches provided entertainment while children decorated ornaments, had their faces painted and awaited their moment with Santa Claus, who was accompanied by a costumed Schnauzer, dubbed “Santa Paws” for the occasion.
