Wondering where you can spot jolly old St. Nicholas in Baton Rouge? Or maybe your family calls him Papa Noël, the Cajun Father Christmas. Either way, little eyes light up when they see the mysterious character in "real" life and they have the chance to wish all their Christmas wishes true.

Dressing up the kids for a picture with Santa in their best holiday outfits and frocks, some passed down for generations, is a Southern Christmas tradition! Baton Rouge has tons of chances for kids to meet Santa. There's the ever-popular and traditional mall Santa photos, but those from out-of-town may be interested in a uniquely southern Louisiana Santa photo as a keepsake from their visit. Some event's photo backdrops include Baton Rouge influences such as Cajun scenery and creatures!

Scroll through these special events in Baton Rouge to take your kids for pictures with Santa and more family fun!
