The Celebration in the Oaks Preview Party was the perfect event to kick off the holiday season on November 22, 2019. The Botanical Gardens were filled with lights from the tops of the trees to a fabulous pirate ship in the lagoon. There truly was a surprise behind every corner.
The Best Time Of Year
Guests got to be the first to enjoy all of the lights at this exclusive all access to the Botanical Gardens and Train Route. The weather was wonderful with a slight breeze which made a perfect evening to stroll through the gardens and enjoy all of the delights.
There was food from over 30 restaurants ranging from wonderful cheese display to shrimp at grits and even wonderful cakes. One of the best dishes was made by a construction company, Marsiglia Construction, who prepared fried catfish with a side of fried jalapeno sliced peppers. Plus, there were wonderful drink specials made with Sazarac, Buffalo Trace, Southern Comfort and Wheatley Vodka.
The Entertainment was definitely a show stopper with Karma New Orleans and a silent disco. Everyone who attended and supported the Celebration in the Oaks had a wonderful evening.
Don’t worry if you could not attend the preview party, there is still ample opportunity to see the lights in the park. The park opens November 29 through January 1, 2020, for everyone to come visit. Tickets start at $10. Click HERE fore more details.
