Poydras Home Holiday Tree Lighting & Music Festival
December 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for an entirely NEW experience at Poydras Home’s first Holiday Tree Lighting & Music Festival on Thursday evening, December 5th from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. At 7:00pm, Poydras Home’s Magazine Street gate will open wide as the public is welcomed to assemble on the our front lawn to hear holiday favorites and gospel music performed by the New Orleans Council on Aging Community Choir under the direction of Mrs. Rhea Dokes. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments of hot cocoa provided by CC’s Coffee House and cookies compliments of Poydras Home will be enjoyed by Poydras Home residents, resident families, neighbors and guests as we await the big moment when at 7:30pm our majestic 30 foot tall tree will be brightly lit! After the party winds down at 8:00pm, our tree will continue to light up the sky through January 1st, serving as a beacon of holiday cheer on the corner of Jefferson Ave. and Magazine Street.
