If you’re planning ahead, the month of December has always been a magical and economical time to visit the city of New Orleans with a stay in our Garden District Lodging, the Grand Victorian. Now a new family-friendly event offers another opportunity to get into the holiday spirit.
The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center near the French Quarter and the Arts District will feature “New Orleans Christmas in the District,” a series of holiday-themed large-scale light displays celebrating the culture and history of New Orleans. Over 70 trees will be lit up in festive holiday colors with unique sparkling lights installed at the tops of many of the palm trees, creating a one-of-a-kind holiday environment.
The display will include a unique digital Christmas tree, thousands of channels of lights that dance to the music and strobe lights that will surprise and delight visitors at just the right moments during the show.
New Orleans Christmas in the District begins Saturday, November 30, 2013, and runs nightly through January 6, 2014, and is free and open to the public.
Check back at our Garden District Lodging to learn more about holiday events in the city. The Christmas in New Orleans guidebook is due out soon.
