For 12 wonderful days this winter, children and adults alike will experience the magic of the holiday season at NOLA ChristmasFest. Regardless of the frightful weather outside, it’s always delightful inside where guests will find dazzling holiday décor and activities for all ages. New Orleans’ only REAL ice rink returns along with carnival rides, inflatables, ice slides, children’s crafts, a snowball zone, beautifully decorated Christmas trees and a gingerbread house display. The festival has expanded by 50,000 square feet this year to make room for even more holiday fun including Bouncy! The World’s Tallest Snowman, a life-sized snow globe perfect for selfies, and curling games. Military and First Responders with valid ID enjoy half-priced admission and special events on Fridays in honor of their service. NOLA ChristmasFest is even open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Eve! The festival is a perfect location to host birthday parties and corporate events.
