Santa to make appearance at basketball game
Elementary school children will get a unique opportunity to earn a free Pizza Hut/Ragin’ Cajuns Pizza Party with their free admission to a televised Ragin’ Cajuns basketball game. On Dec. 12t, young Ragin’ Cajuns fans under 12 years of age will get free admission to see the Cajuns play Florida Atlantic at the Cajundome when they sport their school shirts or wear their school ID tags. The elementary school with the highest percentage of students at the game will win a free Pizza Hut/Ragin’ Cajuns Pizza Party.

“ We thought this would be a fun way to involve our young Lafayette fans in the excitement of a televised basketball game,” said Eric Maron, Ragin’ Cajuns marketing director. “Plus, I understand that Santa Claus will be at the game to hear Christmas wishes. He’ll even have a Christmas gift for those who visit him. We’ll also have free pom-poms, fun jumps, live music and more.”

Young fans under 12 years of age can check in at the tables just inside the Cajundome when they enter. Students who wear their school shirts or have their school ID will get free admission to the 300 level seating. The televised men’s game against Florida Atlantic starts at 1 p.m. and the doors open at noon. The women’s game against Southeastern Louisiana will follow the men’s game.
