Since 1946, Patio Planters of the Vieux Carre has been presenting Caroling in Jackson Square, a free community singalong for visitors and locals alike. The historic Square is illuminated by candlelight as thousands enjoy belting out holiday favorites. Complimentary songbooks and candles are provided. To keep the holidays merry and protect Carolers, current safety protocols will be enforced. Those who cannot attend may join in virtually on WLAE or via live streaming on www.patioplanters.net where songbooks may be downloaded. Families, restaurants, hotels and businesses are encouraged to have their own simultaneous Caroling festivities for even greater virtual participation.
