Celebrate a time honored Louisiana tradition - the lighting of the bonfires on the banks of the Mississippi! The Bonfire Adventure Tour includes round-trip narrated motor coach transportation and a guided tour of San Francisco Plantation, built in 1855 and reported to be the most opulent plantation house in North America. It is a galleried house of the Creole open suite style, nestled under centuries old Live Oaks and contains one of the finest antique collections in the country. This house inspired the novel "Steamboat Gothic" written by Frances Parkinson Keyes. A traditional Christmas dinner will be served on the property.
A police escort will then accompany our "sleigh of coaches" to view the bonfires that light the way for Papa Noel (our Cajun Santa Claus) to bayou country. For many years this Cajun Community has built mammoth wooden structures such as cabins, tepees, & riverboats along the Mississippi River levee. Come see the "feux de joie (fires of joy)! ( Some walking is necessary. Advance guaranteed reservations are required for both tours - call early.
