NOLA might never get a white snowy Christmas. However, we never lack holiday spirit. Right? This year, we kick off our favorite season of the year on November 24 at the Celebration in the Oaks installation in City Park.
If you’ve never experienced this spectacular lights festival, Celebration in the Oaks has been organized since the 1980s and is now a Louisiana holiday family tradition.

City Park’s oaks are decorated with more than a million twinkling holiday lights and beautiful displays scattered throughout a 2.25 driving tour of the Park.
Duration: 30 to 45 minutes
Bike nights are on Tuesday, November 29, December 6, and December 13 from 6 to 9 pm, with the last admission at 8:45 pm.
