Holiday Lights Festival in Magical New Orleans

DreamBreak (this trip does not include a host)
Make it a December to remember & kick off the season in the Big Easy with Celebration in the Oaks, a fun, family-friendly festival of lights in City Park. Round out your weekend with self-guided activities & a 3-night stay at a historic French Quarter hotel. Book by November 3. 

About Your Trip

Grab the kids, pack your camera and get ready to make joyous family memories with this festive DreamBreak in New Orleans. It’s a magical place to be at any time of the year, but at Christmastime, the Big Easy transforms into a spectacularly sparkly wonderland like no other.

You’ll be in the center of the action on Day 2 when you attend Celebration in the Oaks, a beloved holiday festival, complete with enchanting lights, delightful displays, live musical entertainment and much more. It’s the perfect outing to charm your inner child! At 6 p.m., you’ll be escorted from your hotel to City Park via the “Happy Holiday” bus. Along the way, pass stunning mansions decked out in festive decorations and enjoy narrated stories and legends. Once you arrive, you can walk through the 25-acre (10-hectare) park at your own pace. Marvel at millions of twinkling lights on the giant oak trees, walkways and exhibits — the festival features 1,116,700 LED lightbulbs! Have a blast exploring the grounds and experiencing the many attractions, including New Orleans Botanical Garden, featuring more than 2,000 plants, and Storyland with its larger-than-life storybook sculptures. If you'd rather, you can also use your included wristband for complimentary train rides and unlimited amusement rides in the park. By the time you’re escorted back to the hotel at 8:30 p.m., you’re sure to be full of the holiday spirit!

During free time, why not see more of the city at your own pace and visit popular sites done up in their Christmas finery, such as the lovely mansions in the prosperous Garden District? If you’d rather, you can simply hang out close to your hotel, further exploring the vibrant French Quarter, which offers countless delights — especially during the holidays. While street musicians can be found at various spots in the city, Jackson Square is the daily site of one of the best free shows in town. Perhaps you'll hear a jazzed-up version of a traditional carol!

What we love:

  • While you’re out and about, you can also check out some of the free holiday-themed activities around town. Annual events like the celebration of lights at LUNA Fete in Lafayette Square or Festival of the Bonfires at Lutcher Recreational Park are sure to amuse and entertain you.
  • City Park boasts the largest collection of mature oak trees in the world with close to 30,000, each aged between 750 and 900 years old.
  • Bourbon Street provides a cornucopia of visual auditory and olfactory delights in the form of talented street performers, fortune tellers and Cajun seafood restaurants that are second to none.
