Zachary’s first couple Mayor David and Robyn Amrhein became the Clauses of the South and welcomed hundreds of visitors and participants to Christmas in the Village on Friday in the town's Historic District.

Superhero characters, including Spider-Man, Batman, Iron Man, Superman, Wonder Woman and Rocket Raccoon, helped Zachary kick off the holiday season.

The village came alive with synchronized Christmas lights, a live nativity hosted by Zachary United Methodist Church, movies, live music and a visit from Santa. A traveling petting zoo from Red Barn Farm Tours was on hand.
