FRENCH MARKET ANNUAL TREE LIGHTING at Washington Artillery Park directly across from Jackson Square!
Thursday, November 17, 2016
On November 17th, another of the first signs of Christmas appears when a 27-foot fleur de lis topped tree is lit with much fanfare at the French Market Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony from 5 to 6pm. It takes place in Washington Artillery Park, across from Jackson Square. Enjoy a performance by the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park followed by the lighting of the tree with city officials. Secondline to St. Louis Cathedral with the Ice Water Brigade band following the tree lighting for the first Cathedral concert of the season featuring gospel by The Jones Sisters; the concert and tree lighting usher in the 2016 Christmas New Orleans Style!
