ISt Tammany Holiday of Lightsnfo 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.

There 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. "
