You Can Enjoy Unlimited Rides At This Boozy Christmas Carnival In New Orleans All Season
'Tis the season to be lit.
The weather is getting colder and Christmas is literally around the corner so if you haven't gotten in the holly jolly spirit yet, now is the time. We might miss pumpkin patch and fair season, but that doesn't mean the carnival festivities have to come to and end. The Celebration in the Oaks in NOLA is a magical Christmas fairytale land and it's offering you the chance to drink unlimited booze and ride unlimited rides this weekend.
Celebration in the Oaks is a dazzling, mystical holiday wonderland that takes over City Park every winter. The 25-acre park is decked out in over one million lights and cheery installations that are so bright, you might need sunglasses.
On Saturday (Nov. 23), Celebration in the Oaks is hosting Jingle Bells & Beer and it's the boozy Christmas carnival of your dreams. The Carousel Gardens Amusement Park is transformed into a winter wonderland where you can let your hair hang down with over 18 super fun carnival rides, games and of course, all the beer you can drink.
The 21+ event lets you ride UNLIMITED rides with unlimited access to tons of booze bars and craft beer samples. You can get all of this for only $40. You may want to get your tickets now because they typically sell out fast.
Warm up with delicious brews like Tin Roof Bayou Bengal and Parish Strawberry Canebrake. Not a fan of beer? They will have ciders too. Come hungry as well because Cajun-inspired eats will be available including red beans and rice, gumbo and nachos.
Don't forget to sport your ugliest Christmas sweaters or costumes because there will be an ugly holiday sweater contest.
Celebration in the Oaks is open until New Year's Day so if you can't make it to Jingle Bells & Beer, you can still enjoy the mystical wintery amusement park for only $10 (or $28 for unlimited rides) on days with no events.
