Entertainment and Food:
There's lots of entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. In the Carousel Garden there are three or four groups performing every night including, gospel, children's choirs, dancing troupes and many of New Orleans' most talented performers.
The Celebration Cafe, features Puccino's coffee and other goodies. Or go to the CDM Coffee Christmas Cafe for some Cafe-au-lait or hot buttered rum. At this cafe you can also find gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish pasta, bread pudding and more.
Of course no holiday celebration would be complete without Santa Claus, and this festival is no exception. Santa loves Celebration in the Oaks in New Orleans and even though he's very busy this time of year he never misses it. He's in the Carousel Garden every evening from 6 to 9. So, bring the whole family to eat, wander through a wonderland, be entertained and get your picture taken with Santa in this must-see celebration.
