Savor the holiday spirit as Patio Planters of the Vieux Carre presents five French Quarter residences dressed for the season. Residents of the Vieux Carre open their beautifully decorated homes for the self-guided walking tour, which includes interesting architectural styles and home furnishings, as well as a variety of Christmas collections and holiday decor. This festive event includes a refreshment stop and is a prelude to and helps provide funding for the highly anticipated Caroling in Jackson Square later in the evening. Pick-up for advance online sales and day of ticket purchases (cash only) takes place in the alcove of the Cabildo from 11 am - 3 pm on 12/17. Tickets are limited to minimize disruptions in the homes being showcased. Some entrances are narrow and may not be accessible to strollers or wheelchairs.
