Did You Ever See a Cake with 300 Candles? Natchitoches Just Might Bake It! Sunday, Feb 5 2012 

Posted by Doyle Bailey for The Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches (APHN)

As Natchitoches approaches its 300 birthday and Tri-Centennial Celebration in 2014, it is not too early to get ready for a major party and mighty celebrations. After all, in a city that has more than 300,000 Christmas lights and more than 100 set pieces for its annual Christmas celebration, would such a cake be out of the question? The yearlong celebration during 2014 promises to be a big gala and a sweet celebration for you and your group to attend. Consider yourself invited to the fun.
