from the St. Tammany News But the pics are from my cell phone ...... "The
ninth annual Holiday of Lights on the Tammany Trace opens Dec. 5. St. Tammany
Parish President Kevin Davis will flip the switch at 5:45 p.m. to light 45,000
lights on the 160-foot “Christmas tree,” created via the water tower on Koop
Drive in Mandeville.
The free, community-wide event then continues that night and again on the 6th,
12th and 13th from 6-9 p.m. each night.
There will be 45 depictions of Christmas, including a tunnel of lights, 15- foot
snowman, 12-foot Santa, wreaths, angels, reindeer, nativity scene and Star of
David. And there’ll be 40 Christmas trees decorated by local school children,
Girl and Boy Scout troops, and other volunteer groups. Kids can play in the snow
and enjoy the Kidz Konnection playground, too.
will be plenty of live entertainment, as well, as area school choirs, musicians,
violinists and carolers serenade visitors. Santa will be on hand to entertain
kids, and there’ll be carnival-style rides for ‘em, too. "
