The light show and seasonal displays are located throughout 13 acres that includes the Carousel Gardens, Botanical Garden and Storyland.

The annual Caroling in Jackson Square at 7pm on Sunday, December 22, is a night to remember as the crowd holds candles and sings songs in front of the St. Louis Cathedral.

The New Orleans Christmas in the District event features spectacular light displays and over 70 decorated trees. The event culminates at the convention center with animated lighting effects, digital Christmas tree, and thousands of lights synchronized to music.

On December 8th from 1:30pm to 4pm, guests enjoy the 6th Annual Christmas Open House at Auburn with entertainment, baked goods, and free tours.

On December 12th at 5:30pm, sing along at the Holiday Concert hosted by the Eola Hotel. On the 15th, it's all about the kids as Santa will be at historic Stanton Hall from 2pm to 4pm for pictures and wish lists.

Baton Rouge

Saturday, December 14, from 5:30pm to 7pm, join the masses as the Cortana Kiwanis Downtown Christmas Parade celebrates its 63rd season. The Grand Marshall will be on hand to guide marching bands, celebrities, and dance troupes making their way through downtown.
