A Creole Christmas and Holiday Fair was at Magnolia Mound on Sunday afternoon to welcome Papa Noel. The event at the plantation on Nicholson Drive re-created an old-fashioned Christmas with traditional games, folk crafts, storytelling, handmade items for sale and wagon rides. Local youngsters sang Christmas music in French and Spanish. The historic property was adorned with holiday decorations akin to those used in the 19th century.
