Celebration in the Oaks Holiday Tour

Hop on "Santa's bus” for a narrated tour to New Orleans’ City Park, one of the ten largest urban parks in the country that is home to the largest collection of mature live oaks in the world. Trees in the oldest grove are over 800 years old!

See historic City Park transformed into a holiday wonderland. Its ancient oak trees are aglow with massive ornaments decorated with over 1/2 million sparkling lights.

Children from over 200 area schools create handcrafted ornaments to decorate Christmas trees that line the walkways in the Carousel Gardens & Storyland.

Lighted exhibits include the Cajun Night Before Christmas, the “Who Dat” Tree, Santa Gator, a life size Nativity scene, and “A Jackson Square Holiday”.

Live nightly musical entertainment features a mix of school choirs, orchestras, bell choirs, dancing troupes and gospel groups.

Your express admission ticket includes access to the Celebration Grounds, Historic Train Garden, Conservatory of the Two Sisters, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, Storyland, and the Botanical Gardens.
