We thought you might need a little help with the pronunciation as Rochester gets ready to celebrate.
Editor's note: This story was originally published Nov. 2011.
Monday night is the start of the Big, Bright Light Show in downtown Rochester — an event otherwise known as Lagniappe.
What's that, you say?
By now we know what the word means: Lagniappe is a small gift given to a customer (and it will be practiced Monday night in shops across town).
Here, with the help of a few downtown friends, we help you figure out once and for all how to say it.
The Big, Bright Lights Show lights up downtown Rochester starting at 7 tonight. The lights will be on from 6 to midnight through Jan. 6, 2013.
