NOLA ChristmasFest creates a winter wonderland inside the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
Hall H is decked out in holiday decor and attractions include ice skating, slides, snowball fights, amusement rides, a climbing wall, photos with Santa Claus, a display of gingerbread houses, giant inflatables, crafts, cookie decorating and more.
New this year are “Snowzilla,” on which participants can slide down a 90-foot ramp, a giant snowman, curling on artificial ice, a padded “polar” golf course and a giant snowglobe for taking selfies. Many activities, such as ice skating and rides, are included with general admission.
