The Paddlewheeler Creole Queen’s Cajun Holiday Tea With Papa Noel
Even though New Orleans has never needed a reason to celebrate, we do pull out all the stops for the holiday season. Starting in November and continuing through the New Year, a joyous energy fills the air with the unique holiday flair and flavor only New Orleans can offer. The Paddlewheeler Creole Queen’s Cajun Holiday Tea with Papa Noel is part of that one-of-a-kind New Orleans holiday experience.
This holiday cruise on the Mississippi River is fun for the whole family. Beloved characters bring the spirit and story of Papa Noel and Cajun Christmas traditions alive. Papa Noel and Mrs. Noel, along with other festive friends, will be there to mingle, entertain and tell classic holiday stories and New Orleans favorites like the “Cajun Night Before Christmas” on each cruise. Gaston the Gator, a real live alligator from the Louisiana swamp, will also be in attendance for guests to hold and take pictures with.
Classic holiday tea will be served along with an assortment of decadent sweets and treats. Each child will also receive a special present from Papa Noel. In true New Orleans fashion, each cruise will end with a second line lead by Papa Noel. Combined with the beautiful views of the Crescent City from the Mighty Mississippi, the Cajun Holiday Tea cruise is sure to be a memorable experience this holiday season in New Orleans!
Don’t leave without a souvenir photograph with Papa Noel. Our version of Kris Kringle is different from your average Santa Claus. Hailing from the bayous and swamps of Louisiana, Papa Noel has the accent and shrimping boots to match. Guests will have many great photo opps and are encouraged to share their Cajun Holiday Tea cruise pictures on their social networks tagging them #PapaNoel2014. The Paddlewheeler Creole Queen will feature photos tagged with #PapaNoel2014 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
