Deanie's Holiday Kids Program Entertains for Fourth Year
Vince Vance Holiday Kids revelers will enjoy breakfast and photos with Santa, holiday crafts, face-painting, and an interactive performance and sing-along with Vince Vance and his helpers, the Valianettes. Each child receives a free photo with Santa, a goody bag and a commemorative Christmas songbook signed by Vince Vance and Santa Claus.

Vance will entertain the audience with traditional Christmas songs such as "Jingle Bells," "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Silent Night," "Frosty the Snowman," "Away in a Manger," and Vance's mega hit, "All I Want for Christmas is You," and his new release, "Christmas State of Mind." Whether you enjoy a sip of cocoa and photo with Santa, share a holiday celebration with friends, join in the caroling and jolly dance party during the Vince Vance Holiday Kids program, or simply take a stroll along Dauphine Street to see Deanie's festive French Quarter holiday displays. 

Deanie's is a favorite New Orleans holiday destination. The restaurant, located in the former D.H. Holmes Department Store Annex at the corner of Iberville and Dauphine streets, features traditional department store holiday window displays lining Dauphine Street, adding a dose of holiday cheer to the neighborhood. Each of the five displays highlights a familiar Christmas theme, including Santa's workshop, Santa's elves decorating a tree, Santa and Mrs. Claus in a winter wonderland, and a traditional Nativity scene.

For more than 50 years, Deanie's Seafood Restaurants and Market have been serving huge portions of the best boiled, broiled and fried seafood in New Orleans. Deanie's operates a thriving seafood market and catering business as well as two successful restaurants in the New Orleans area, the original location at 1713 Lake Ave. in the quaint fishing village of Bucktown (Metairie) and a second location in the heart of the historic French Quarter, located at 841 Iberville St.
