Snow is expected in Denham Springs Friday.

The snow — or what passes for the wet, white stuff in Louisiana — is part of the city’s celebration of the holiday season during the official lighting of Old City Hall, on Mattie Street.

The festivities, set from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., will include music, activities and hot chocolate. The mayor is set to read a Christmas story.

The event is part of the city’s Christmas in the Village celebration through Dec. 19.

On Saturday, a Christmas Open House is set from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the Denham Springs Antique and Arts Village.

Santa and Mrs. Clause will be at Old City Hall for pictures from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and at 3 p.m., Home Depot will present a children’s Christmas craft.

Live music will be played throughout the day downtown.

The holiday fun continues Dec. 3 when the Chef’s Evening and Wine Tasting event is set.

Local chefs will set up in shops from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Denham Springs Antique Village and present tastings of selected items from their menus. Mattie Street will be transformed into “Arts Avenue” during the event. Artists will display original artwork for sale.

Tickets are available at Old City Hall for a $25 donation or online at!chefs-evening-and-wine-tasting-event/c1cmq.
