              CREOLE QUEEN'S CAJUN HOLIDAY TEA WITH PAPA NOEL

New Orleans, LA (October 14, 2011) -The enchanting book, The Cajun Night Before Christmas, will come to life this Holiday Season aboard the Creole Queen Paddlewheeler. The authentic paddlewheeler will play host to a unique and very special Cajun Children's Holiday Tea Saturday December 3, 10 and 17 featuring Papa Noel, the Cajun Gingerbread Boy, Gaston the Gator and other jolly holiday characters. Enjoy storytelling, children's activities, and the opportunity to hold a real live alligator! The fun-filled family festivity will also offer a classic tea with traditional hors d'oeuvres and a bountiful candy buffet. Additionally, each child will receive a stuffed gator to take home. Guests board the Creole Queen at 1:30pm at the foot of Poydras Street at Riverwalk and cruise the mighty Mississippi River from 2-3:30pm. Cost is $49 for adults and $34 for children under 12 years of age. Reservations are required by calling 504.529.4567 or at creolequeen.com.  

ABOUT THE CREOLE QUEEN: Constructed in Moss Point, Mississippi, the Creole Queen took her maiden voyage on October 1, 1983. She is an authentic paddlewheeler powered by a 24- foot diameter paddlewheel and the most modern, fuel-efficient GE diesel-electric system ever installed in a boat of this class. Even though the Creole Queen would have been right at home in the New Orleans of 1850, passengers of that era could never have conceived of a paddlewheeler with her luxury, comfort and safety. Ninety tons of air conditioning and heating keep the interior spaces pleasant all year round. Luxurious private rooms, stereo music and sound systems, modern restrooms and handicapped accessible facilities all combine to make this iconic riverboat a true floating palace.
