(New Orleans, La.) - NOLA ChristmasFest, fast becoming one of the largest indoor holiday events along the Gulf Coast, will be held Friday, December 22 through Sunday, December 31, 2017, at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Convention Center officials announced today that the Fifth Annual NOLA ChristmasFest will be expanded for this year's holiday event after an overwhelming success in 2016 in which nearly 35,000 visitors from all across the South enjoyed the indoor Christmas festivities.

NOLA ChristmasFest 2016 will once again feature New Orleans' only real ice skating rink and ice slide, holiday characters, amusement rides, themed inflatables, arts and crafts, and much more inside the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center along the Mississippi Riverfront. Preliminary plans also call for the return of the Gingerbread House exhibit and expanded evening hours.

The popular children's rides including the walk through maze, Kringle Carousel, Winter Whirl, Snowball Fight and the Snowy Summit Climbing Wall will all be back under one roof at this year's NOLA ChristmasFest. Children and families will be able to take memorable Christmas photos with Santa and his North Pole friends and arrange for private ice skating lessons.

NOLA ChristmasFest, a 10-day special holiday event, will display thousands of dazzling lights and dozens Christmas trees decorated by New Orleans businesses, and Convention Center Boulevard will be draped in holiday décor with over one million mesmerizing lights synced to traditional and contemporary Christmas music.

NOLA ChristmasFest will be open every day from December 22-31 including special hours on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve. NOLA ChristmasFest will offer discounted parking at nearby parking lots. For more information, please visit www.nolachristmasfest.com.
