Here in Oakdale, what we lack in numbers we make up for in gusto. Christmas is no different. We look forward to the Christmas parade every single year, and we hope to see you there! If you want more Christmas events, here are a few in the general area that we think would be fun for the whole family. Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights Fancy a small road trip? In 1992, five communities along the I-20 and I-49 freeways banded together to create the Trail of Lights. Each community decks out their downtown area with a dazzling holiday light display. The trail starts in Alexandria, passes through Natchitoches, continues in Shreveport, turns east through Minden, and concludes in Monroe. Try one or two cities in one evening, or see them all in one trip if you’re up for a drive.
