Story Time in Storyland during Celebration in the Oaks

Local authors read under the Storyland Castle

Storyland Castle

Storyland Castle

Kids will love hearing stories read aloud to them in a holiday decorated setting.

Storyland is normally magical, but during Celebration in the Oaks it's transformed into a land of twinkle lights.

Local New Orleans authors will read aloud stories as kids and parents sit in the Storyland Castle.

Dates: December: 2-5, 9-12, and 16-19

Times: 6:30pm and 7pm

Books will be on sale for purchase and signing from the author. Admission to Celebration in the Oaks is needed but there is no additional cost to attend readings. This is a come and go program - aside from a Celebration in the Oaks ticket, there are no 'storytime' additional tickets needed.
