The 44th annual Lagniappe (Creole for "a little something extra") kicks off the holiday season just in time for Thanksgiving in Downtown Rochester. Merchants offer "lagniappe" to their customers as a token of appreciation for their support throughout the year. Enjoy strolling carolers, free horse-drawn carriage rides, Santa Claus, and the lighting of the Big, Bright Light Show at 7:00pm. For more information, call 248-656-0060.
