Christmas in the Oaks has it’s 30 year opening


City Park trees lit with Christmas lights to celebrate the Christmas in the Oaks weekend.

Sunday, Christmas in the Oaks started its 30th year. The park offers a walking path for families and friends to walk around and look at Christmas lights. Holiday characters like Santa and Frosty the Snowman were displayed. They also had decorated lights of ducks, presents, the nutcracker, dinosaurs and more.

The park also has a train ride that goes throughout the entire park and an amusement park with rides. Participants can get the wristband for $18 which includes unlimited rides and the train ride. The admission into the park is $9.

“Before (Hurricane) Katrina hit, Christmas in the Oaks had a drive thru that allowed people to drive around and watch the Christmas lights if they didn’t want to walk,” said Lisa Kennedy, an attendee at Christmas in the Oaks.

Kennedy said she enjoys taking her children to see the Christmas lights and ride all the rides.

Located at 1 Victory Ave, New Orleans, Louisiana, Christmas in the Oaks is open now until Jan. 3 from 6-10 p.m., excluding Dec. 24 and 31.
