So Much to Do for the Holidays in New Orleans

18 December 2006

Friends of ours called the other day and the conversation led to what was there to do in the city at Holiday time. They wanted to come visit, but they wanted “things” to do.  “Isn’t it rather a quiet time there now?”

Well, with a little research, I surprised myself about how much the city really has to offer in December, even in the last days before Christmas and New Years. So here is just a short list of holiday activities in these last two weeks of the year (and even into January). May we suggest that you plan a mini “get-a-way” and come on down for what is one of the best times of the year in the Crescent City:

Caroling in Jackson Square

St. Louis Cathedral Christmas Concerts

Celebration in the Oaks at City Park

Chefs’ Holiday Cooking Demonstrations

Christmas Eve Bonfire Cruises

Creole Christmas Home Tour

Handel’s “Messiah” at the First Baptist Church

Historical Characters-“Louisiana Living History Project” in the French Quarter all December

Holiday Traditions Around the World-Children’s Museum

Jingling Through the Crescent on Christmas Day-Gray Line Tours

Merriment on Magazine Street-Holiday Shopping All December

New Orleans Bowl-Sun Belt Conference champion vs Conference USA opponent
