    One of the premier parties of the holiday season in New Orleans, this dazzling soiree kicks off the annual lights display. Guests get the first glimpse of the lights and are given exclusive access to the Botanical Garden and amusement park. Naturally, because this is New Orleans, food, music and adult beverages are available in abundance. Five live music stages feature the best local musicians, and guest are treated to a tantalizing array of foods from 50 local restaurants and caterers. The party is from 7:30pm to 11pm.
