It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Mark your calendars for Friday, December 12th!

It’s Volunteer Ascension’s Christmas Movie Night!! The festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Amphitheater at Jambalaya Park in Gonzales.

This year’s event will be a double feature. Come at 6:00 p.m. and treat the family to theater popcorn, hot chocolate and other “movie-style” concessions, and then bundle up and settle in for a great night of family fun! In the first feature, it’s off to Whoville in Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, and stay for the second feature where an angel named Clarence is assigned to a troubled George Bailey in the popular Christmas classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life”.

Sherry Denig, Executive Director stated, “We are so excited about this family-friendly Christmas event! Jambalaya Park is so beautifully decorated; it’s the perfect place to meet with friends and family during the Christmas Season!

Denig added, “And thanks to our friends at BASF, admission is free! All we ask is that each person attending brings at least one canned good or non-perishable item. All food donations will go to Ascension Parish food banks.”

Bring your chairs and dress warmly. No ice chests and No Alcohol, please.

Concessions will be available for purchase.
