West Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
Global Vacation Ventures is keen on pointing out that travelers heading to New Orleans during the month of December will not want to miss out on the Celebration in the Oaks holiday event. The festive, month-long outdoor celebration features hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights and is one of the brightest and festive events in the region. For a quarter of a century, the Celebration in the Oaks event has been a holiday staple for the people of New Orleans, and 2014 is a great year for travelers to integrate these traditional events into their own holiday traditions.
From Black Friday all the way through New Year's Day, Global Vacation Ventures points out that travelers can visit the festival and its attractions like the kid-friendly Storyland, the botanical gardens, and the carousel gardens. The carousel gardens are filled with holiday attractions like a two-mile mini train ride that travels throughout the park, giving riders the perfect opportunity to enjoy the festive decorations. All of these attractions make the event perfect for all members of the family to enjoy while they are on their holiday travels.
The Celebration in the Oaks event is a community event as much as it is a holiday one. Global Vacation Ventures knows that many of the decorations are assembled by local community groups who donate their time to ensuring that the event is as flawless as it has ever been. For example, some of the Christmas trees are decorated by local grade-school children, and the Cajun Night Before Christmas is a local twist on the popular Christmas Eve tale.
Running all week long, with varying hours during weeknight and weekend dates, the Celebration in the Oaks event requires tickets, which can be purchased on location, or ahead of time, online. Global Vacation Ventures advises travelers to bring some spare cash to the festival as access to rides cost extra beyond the entry ticket. However, there is also the option for an unlimited-rides wristband that can save avid riders some money. Public parking is available as well as select tour group transportation options.
