The Heart of Louisiana: Xmas Trains

Xmas Trains

New Orleans City Park’s annual Celebration in the Oaks brings together both locals and those with a zest for Louisiana history. At the holiday event, a 1500 foot mini-train track runs with a bright display of lights and a taste of historical New Orleans. These Xmas trains have been considered as the fifth largest public display for trains.

Many familiar and historical sites from the city are embedded within the train display, such as creole cottages, lighthouses from Pontchartrain Beach, and the St. Louis Cathedral.
