NEW ORLEANS – Join in the holiday fun at Canal Place’s annual SELFIES WITH SANTA event on Tuesday, November 23 from 3 to 7 PM! Meet Santa and friends at Canal Place for pictures and to turn on the Canal Street holiday lights with the Downtown Development District. Canal Place will serve as the official location for the Canal Street Lighting Ceremony which begins at 4:30 outside on the Canal Place Plaza. Before or after the ceremony, settle in for Santa’s favorite snack (cookies, of course!), bask in the holiday glow of the 45-foot Christmas tree, enjoy a puppet show and meet the jolly man himself!
Begin your afternoon of free, festive fun with a trip north to visit Canal Place’s stylish Santa. Santa Claus will don a sophisticated twist on his traditional red suit with a red and green plaid coat, ready to pose for photos and find out each child’s Christmas wish from 3 – 7 PM. Santa’s elves will provide cookies for your hungry holiday helpers.
The magical surprises continue as Calliope Puppets presents a special holiday-themed puppet show full of familiar family stories with a festive twist. Children ages 3 to 10 will enjoy these lively, interactive presentations at 3:30 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.
All the while, enjoy the merriment of Canal Place’s Christmas décor, which includes their notable moss wall with a new holiday-themed phrase. The moss wall is the perfect backdrop for those unique holiday card pictures.
