The Ronald McDonald House has been transformed for the holidays. The group Third Coast Gala hosted a decorating party there Thursday.

The event turned into a holiday party complete with Christmas tree decorating and a Christmas cookie bake-off. The group has been hosting the decorating parties for the past six years and said they want to make the families staying in the house feel at home for the holidays.

Third Coast Gala also stocked the pantry at the Ronald McDonald House for the next month.
