Minden, Louisiana Sparkles During the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights, Nov. 19-Jan. 6, 2017

Minden, LA-Celebrate Christmas with the folks from the “Friendliest City in the South,” in Minden. The quaint city will be all dressed up for Christmas and ready to receive visitors as a part of the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights, Nov. 19-Jan. 6, 2017.  Thousands of Christmas lights sparkle throughout downtown and hundreds of life-size nutcrackers are featured in this year’s Christmas displays.

Do not miss Minden’s Fasching Festival on Saturday, November 19 and celebrate Minden’s German heritage. Downtown Minden will be lined with lifesize nutcrackers and filled with German food, beer gardens, arts and craft vendors, costumes, a carnival, stilt walkers, and of course, there will be live music throughout the day. At the end of the day as the sun goes down, the City of Minden will flip the switch to thousands of Christmas lights and displays illuminating the historic downtown brick streets. It all begins at 10 a.m. Visit www.visitwebster.net for more details.

December 3, join the folks in Minden for a full day of holiday festivities. The activities begin at 10 a.m. as the downtown antique shops and boutiques open for business offering Christmas specials for your shopping needs. Weihnachtsmann, whom many of us know as Santa Claus, will be on hand. You can also catch the Annual Christmas Parade at 5:30 p.m. The Annual Christmas Tour of Homes is within walking distance and four homes will be available to tour from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The tour includes historic private homes never available to the public before and buildings with varied architecture including Spanish Colonial and Victorian. Admission is $10 for the entire tour and can be purchased at any of the locations. Then enjoy the thousands of beautiful Christmas lights adorning the city.

Minden is located just 3 hours east of Dallas, Texas and 28 miles east of Shreveport, Louisiana on I-20, exit 47.
