The event, which is sponsored by Coca Cola, will be sure to light up your kids' faces when they get to ask Santa Clause for what they want this year. The 'fest has been going for seven years now and doesn't look to be stopping any time soon.
"Christmas in New Orleans has always been a magical time. NOLA ChristmasFest, a dazzling, family-friendly seasonal event, offers another opportunity to get into the holiday spirit," states the NOLA ChristmasFest website. The event will take place in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center with parking available next door.
Speaking about the origins of the festival Rosalie
Mortillaro, Director of Marketing & Communications at New Orleans Ernest N.
Morial Convention Center, she said, "NOLA ChristmasFest originated in 2013 as
'Christmas in the District,' a dazzling holiday light display that served as
the centerpiece of holiday cheer in the Warehouse District."
Mortillaro also talked
about how the program is a haunt of locals and visitors alike. The company has
the benefit of sponsors from businesses like Coca Cola to bring their flair to
the festival through the Gingerbread Village and Christmas Tree. The goal of
the program has always been to bring holiday cheer to the city and it looks to
do so this year as well.
What is new this year is a
nightly snowfall over the ice rink, a 50-foot Ferris wheel, and a Tinsel
Terrace Town, which is a great spot to have a drink between skating and
admiring the decorations. Whatever you're looking for this holiday season NOLA
Christmas Fest should be at the top of your list.
