A Twinkle in the TreesCelebration in the Oaks starts the day after Thanksgiving on November 25, 2016, offering a perfect way to cap off your day of shopping.
Centuries-old oak trees get a holiday makeover thanks to thousands of sparkling lights, creating a magical spectacle for guests who walk under the glistening boughs.
Children will delight in themed trees (the Who Dat tree is a local favorite for Saints fans) and the kid-friendly light displays in Storyland.
For adults, head to the Botanical Garden for glittering lights that adorn the more than 2,000 varieties of plant life on the property.
Along the way, you’ll see charming walkways decorated by local schools.
Are your feet tired yet?
There’s also a two-mile train ride to take you through the exhibit.
Overall, the light display spans more than 25 acres, and our typically mild winters make the park an excellent spot for meandering and admiring (with a cup of hot cocoa, perhaps?) at your own pace.
