NOLA ChristmasFest Opens this Thursday!

.Experience the magic of the season at an indoor holiday celebration that offers fun for all ages amidst twinkling lights, decorated trees, gingerbread creations, a snowball fight area, lovable holiday characters and more at the New Orleans Convention Center, December 21-31.

Take a spin on the REAL ice rink, whiz down the ice slides, scale the Snowy Summit Climbing Wall or swirl around on the Winter Whirl or Blitzen Flyer. This year, in addition to rides, crafts and inflatables, and entertainment, NOLA ChristmasFest features a walk-thru gingerbread house and visits from special guests like My Best Friend Hank and members of the Tulane Men and Women’s Basketball Teams.  There’s even an adult beverage lounge where you can enjoy a frozen eggnog daiquiri, as well as other specialty cocktails, and you won’t want to miss the “One Time in New Orleans” Story Booth where you can share your own tale as part of the City’s Tricentennial celebration.

Pay One Price for tons of unlimited fun, including skating on the city’s only REAL ice rink, skate rental, ice slides, rides and inflatables, a walk-thru gingerbread house, crafts, rock climbing, gingerbread houses and decorated trees, lovable characters and more – even an adult beverage lounge to purchase your favorite cocktails. And, there are optional add-ons like photos with Santa thru Christmas Eve, private skating lessons, face painting and take-home decorated cookies.

The family-friendly holiday extravaganza will be open Christmas Eve & Day and New Year’s Eve, and there’s convenient parking across from the entrance in Hall I.
