The friends and volunteers of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana invite the community to the 8th annual Slidell's Bayou Christmas in Heritage Park, December 15-18 and 22-23, 2022, 6-9 p.m. each evening.
This six-day holiday festival features free photos with Santa Claus, ice skating, entertainment, light displays, food and beverages, holiday decorations and a narrated Nativity display. Admission is free to the public. Proceeds benefit the Slidell Unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana (BGCML).
The Slidell Unit of the BGCML is open every day, after school, and all day during the summer months, currently open with strict CDC guidelines. Earlier this year, when it was closed, the Club partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank to feed those in the community experiencing food insecurity, for free. For over 40 years, the nonprofit has provided youth in Slidell a safe place, caring adult mentors, fun, friendship, and high-impact youth development programs. Children receive a snack and a take home dinner meal daily.
Any individuals or businesses who would like to sponsor this event can contact Tony Leggio at email@example.com or Danny Blackburn at (985) 640-7112. Learn more about becoming a sponsor, craft vendor or food vendor at https://bgcmetrolouisiana.org/events/upcoming-events/bayou-christmas.html.
