Trees on Hilton’s Santa Claus Lane

Dozens and dozens of trees!

Each year dozens of schools and non-profits gather to decorate Christmas trees along Hilton's Santa Claus Lane in Carousel Gardens Amusement Park during Celebration in the Oaks.

A special partnership with Hilton hotels of New Orleans: General Managers from area Hilton branded properties judged the Christmas trees on Hilton's Santa Claus Lane and award a $3000 cash prize to the winner.

The 2019 season winner was announced during the special FOX 8 on-site morning show on December 6th.  Click here to see! 

The 2019 winner is.....

Boothville Venice Elementary! The $3000 award from Hilton will go to the school's art program. Students used recycled items and a 'snoman' theme. 

BIG congrats to Boothville Venice Elementary and a BIG thanks to Hilton!
