In New Orleans, the calendar is packed with festive things to do. If you are not a local, New Orleans would be a great, weekend getaway for you and your family. These are a few things on my list since the kids are getting older. We are still adding family, holiday traditions. The dates are not yet released, but they will be listed on each website as it gets closer.
The list of events:
This is a very popular event so arrive early. Every year hundreds of candles light up the square as the annual caroling event takes place. Song sheets and candles are provided.
This is a fun event for the entire family. Gaston the Gator joins Papa Noel aka Santa Claus on the Paddlewheeler Creole Queen. Holiday tea, face painting, magic, and costumed characters are part of the boat ride.
Fulton Street is transformed into a winter wonderland whether it’s cold or not. The celebration begins on Friday, Dec. 4 and continues through Sunday, Dec. 27. An annual holiday tradition, Miracle on Fulton Street is free and open to the public. During the month-long celebration, New Orleans residents and tourists of all ages will be entertained by the sights and sounds of the holiday season.
In December, the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center has ice skating and lots of other activities for the whole family. It is worth every penny.
Throughout the month, some of the city’s best musicians put on shows in St Louis Cathedral. These are free holiday concerts that are open to the public. This is great for the entire family.
For all of those holiday events that are coming up, I have the perfect, little black dress for you from & Other Stories. It fits true to size. Y’all, the sheer, balloon sleeves are stunning. I added the leather clutch that is also from & Other Stories. This seriously will be my go-to for all of the special dates.

We don’t normally dress up that much for family dinners. For some of the parties we attend this outfit would be perfect. Love the boots and the dress with those sleeves looks great.
That is super cute! You look fantastic.
