Nice in July! Christmas comes early at the New Orleans Convention Center

The free event will take place on Saturday, July 30 at the Live Oak Porch, just across from the Convention Center‘s HI Lobby.

Families can look forward to beating the scorching heat by tucking into holiday-flavored snowballs and writing letters to veterans to spread holiday cheer.
