Celebration in the Oaks Run/Walk

The second Saturday of December gives East Jefferson General Hospital the chance to host an event that is especially popular with families. After running or walking a beautiful 2-mile course through City Park, participants get to see the Celebration in the Oaks Light Display before the gates are open to the general public. The day is filled with cocoa, visits with Santa and much more. Many of those running and walking this event do so with strollers or children right by their side.

Where Ya’t from NewOrleansLocal.com!!! You know you are a New Orleans Local if you know what I mean when I say ‘we’re makin’ groceries or I ask how’s your mam-ane’m’, and that’s who Brett and Cheryl Bauman and WVUE FOX8 are. New Orleans is a city that you just can’t help but fall in love with; from its history and culture, to its fine cuisine that can only be described as uniquely Nawlins. We wanted to give us Locals a single resource guide that describes all of the fascinating things that our city has to offer to us every day and we have done it through the creation of NewOrleansLocal.com. NewOrleansLocal.com is a New Orleans Event Calendar website that is designed on three words: Simple, Complete, and Local. New Orleanians have no single source to go to, to find out what is happening around in the city. Normally, we just ask our friends where they are going or try to sift through the endless internet. We have solved this problem with a simple-to-use Calendar. The calendar is arranged by events that are organized by date into categories such as Music, Food, and Festivals.  So, if you want to know what is happening this weekend in the music world, you can select the music category on the calendar and find out who is playing where in the city. If you don’t know what you want to do this week, you can check out our top picks for the week of fun things to do. If you have a fun event that you recommend, submit your event to us and we will add it to our calendar. It is that simple.
