Hop on Santa's bus for a narrated tour to New Orleans' City Park, one of the ten largest urban parks in the U.S. and home to the largest collection of mature live oaks in the world with trees dating to over 800 years old.

Enjoy the view of 19th century mansions, brightly decorated for the holidays, in the city's original Creole area as the bus travels to Esplanade Avenue, a boundary of Faubourg Treme and the subject of the hit HBO television series Treme.

See the historic City Park transformed into a holiday wonderland. Its ancient oak trees are aglow with massive ornaments decorated with over half a million sparkling lights. Children from over 200 area schools create handcrafted ornaments to decorate the Christmas trees that line the walkways in the Carousel Gardens & Storyland.

Lighted exhibits include the Cajun Night Before Christmas, the Who Dat Tree, Santa Gator, a life size Nativity scene, and A Jackson Square Holiday. Live nightly musical entertainment features a mix of school choirs, orchestras, bell choirs, dancing troupes and gospel groups.

The Friends of City Park Holiday Gift Shop and the Botanical Garden Shop are open nightly for special holiday shopping. Food and drink are available for purchase at the Holiday Café which features a variety of local and holiday fare.
