‘Noel Iberia’ aims to bring Christmas decorations and cheer to Iberia Parish without public funds


NEW IBERIA, La., (KLFY) — A civic group, co-founded by an Iberia Parish councilwoman, is calling on other elected officials to help decorate parts of the parish for Christmas.

“Noel Iberia” is a project from the “Better Days on the Bayou” organization. According to co-founder and Dist. 6 Council Member Natalie Broussard, the initiative has received commitments from various officials around Iberia Parish to decorate prominent areas while spreading cheer and goodwill.

“All too often, as elected officials, our tasks are to help constituent’s with issues or problems,” said Broussard.  This is a way to do something fun in the community and foster greater joy and spirits for the holidays.”

Broussard said no public funds will be used in the project, and each elected official will pay for their holiday display privately.
