With Festival of Lights in the Oil Center not happening this year, people were questioning whether Santa would still be there.

The Oil Center Association Board announced last week that the Festival of Lights wouldn't happen this year due to a number of reasons. The Board will consider the festival for next year.

That being said, what about the Santa that sits atop the Lafayette General Medical Center skywalk?

As it turns out, Santa will return!

A spokesperson for Lafayette Consolidated Government says the Santa Claus Christmas decoration will be placed on top of Lafayette General's skywalk the day after Thanksgiving.
