"New Orleans Christmas in the District" Event Announced
Features New Orleans-Themed Light Display Animated to Music


New Orleans, LA - Christmas in New Orleans has always been a magical time, and now a dazzling, family-friendly seasonal event that combines Louisiana traditions with state-of-the-art technology offers another opportunity to get into the holiday spirit.
The neutral ground along Convention Center Blvd. between Julia St. and Poydras St. will set the stage for "New Orleans Christmas in the District," a series of holiday-themed large-scale light displays celebrating the culture and history of New Orleans, climaxing at the Convention Center's new pedestrian plaza. Over 70 trees will be lit up in festive holiday colors with unique sparkling lights installed at the tops of many of the palm trees, creating a one-of-a-kind holiday environment.

The highlight of the display resides at the main entrance to the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center where a light show consisting of digitally animated lighting effects synchronized to music will entertain visitors. The display will include a unique digital Christmas tree, thousands of channels of lights that dance to the music and strobe lights that will surprise and delight visitors at just the right moments during the show.
The New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center is funding the event as a part of its mission to bring visitors to town, and is expected to inspire all the residents and businesses in the Warehouse/Arts District to embrace the event and help grow it annually.

"We invite local residents and visitors to bring their families and friends to dine in the Warehouse/Arts District, then take a stroll or drive along Convention Center Boulevard to enjoy the light display of Christmas in the District," said Bob Johnson, President/General Manager of the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. " We also encourage all Warehouse/Arts District business and residents to join in the Christmas spirit by putting up their own festive lights and decorations in their windows and outside of their buildings. If we all work together, this event could rival some of the largest holiday events in the country."

New Orleans Christmas in the District begins Saturday, November 30, 2013, and runs nightly through January 6, 2014, and is free and open to the public. The event will complement the annual "Christmas New Orleans Style" celebration, and will continue to evolve annually.
