Where to See New Orleans Area Holiday Lights

By Gardner Realtors | December 4, 2019

Is your house on fire, Clark?

No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights.


Tis the season for extravagance. It’s that magical time of year where there’s no such thing as too much, and this is never truer than with Holiday decorations. From buying the biggest tree that will fit in the living room, to making sure that inflatable Rudolph is standing up just right, our houses and yards are full of cheer this time of year. Not all of us are Clark Griswold, though. For most of us, it’s much more enjoyable to avoid the unending tangle of lights, and instead, go see amazing displays of twinkling joy with a warm beverage in hand. So, for those of you in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, the Northshore or on the MS Gulf Coast, here’s where to see the lights this Holiday season!
