NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

City Park gears up for its annual holiday tradition of Celebration in the Oaks. With millions of dazzling lights and breathtaking displays, organizers said Friday night's preview party is a perfect way to kick off the holidays.

“I mean look right here, we've got Mr. Bingle here, the poinsettia tree,” said Chief Development Office John Hopper. “It just really ushers in the holiday season. Everything’s fresh, the lights are bright. We have a lot of new exhibits. There's one you've got to come and see - the peacocks!”

It's impossible to come to Celebration in the Oaks and not have a good time.

The preview party kicks off at 7:30 p.m. in the Botanical Garden. There are four music stages and plenty of food to enjoy from over 30 restaurants.

Tickets are on sale online here, and the weather is expected to be perfect.
