Despite temperatures that rose into the 80s, about 50,000 pounds of snow fell Dec. 12 at Lafreniere Park in Kenner. The children, along with parents, who enjoyed the tiny taste of winter, didn’t seem to mind that the stuff was made by man rather than by Mother Nature. It was part of Holiday in the Park, which features light displays such as an 18-foot-high Ferris wheel and an illuminated scene from “Star Wars.” The display is open from dusk to 9:45 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and dusk to 11:45 p.m. Friday and Saturdays. A carousel will be open until 9 p.m. every night, at a cost of $1 per rider. Admission is free on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. On other nights, the show costs $3.
