Carriage Rides in City Park

During Celebration in the Oaks

Carriage rides in New Orleans City Park:

The whole family will love riding in an old fashioned carriage though a portion of New Orleans City Park seeing many of the lights of Celebration in the Oaks. A little chilly? No worries - curl up with a provided blanket. Listen to guides speak about the Park and take in the sights. 

This is a great holiday activity for anyone including groups or as a date night idea. We can't wait to see the photos posted to social media! #CelebrationIntheOaks #iheartcitypark
