New Orleans Holiday Festivities at ‘Celebration in the Oaks’


‘Celebration in the Oaks’, is one of traditions during Christmas in this city of Mardi Gras. And we were there to experience the holiday festivities.

This holiday light wonderland opens at six in the evening and we were excited to see all the beautiful displays. A snow igloo with Penguins, peacocks with their colorful wings, a rocking pony and a brightly lit drum – greeted us outside the entertainment tent. It was all shiny & vibrant and before starting the tour, we decided to fuel up with coffee and cookies from the food shack.
