Hundreds attended Friday’s Christmas in the Village celebration in downtown Zachary.

The idyllic holiday setting in Zachary Historical Village featured Christmas music and performances by local singers, children’s choirs and dance troupes in the festively decorated gazebo.

A Christmas tree lighting ceremony by Mayor David Amrhein kicked off the night’s events, which included photos with Santa by a vintage firetruck, an arts and crafts market, Christmas displays, a movie on the lawn, tours of the Allison, Baumann and McHugh houses and Old Town Hall.

There were also gourmet food trucks and a children’s game area sponsored by BREC.
