I won 4 FREE tickets to this on the radio...

Celebration in the Oaks ™. What is it? Well...locals get to share in the joy and spirit of the 23rd annual Celebration with favorites including the fabled Carousel (a century-old Antique Carousel) and the train which will take patrons on an enchanted journey highlighted by an electrifying light display along City Park Avenue, and the Botanical Garden decked out in its holiday glory. This rich tradition is a New Orleans' signature! Some of the things I'll get to see: -A new state of the art twenty minute Laser Light Show set to holiday music performed by some of New Orleans' favorite artists. -A twenty-foot tall Poinsettia Christmas Tree is the focal point of the Botanical Garden's Conservatory of the Two Sisters. -The multi-media Cajun Night Before Christmas exhibit depicting the classic local twist on the traditional tale, but this one if set on a Louisiana bayou, Santa is dressed in muskrat "from his head to his toe," his skiff is filled high with toys and is hitched to eight friendly alligators, not a Prancer or Comet among them. -A New Orleans Christmas figure that many are strongly loyal to this time of year...(it's not Santa)'s Mr. Bingle. More to come on Mr. Bingle later since I want to devout a full post to him.
