Events Happening in New Orleans
Date: Saturday, December 06, 2008 At 10:00 AM
Duration: 2 Hours

The Downtown Development District will welcome one of New Orleans' most beloved faces back to Canal Street on Saturday, December 6 in an inaugural holiday parade hosted by the DDD and the Roosevelt Hotel New Orleans. The parade begins at 10 a.m. and is the kick-off to Canal Street: Your Home for the Holidays.

Mr. Bingle, the jolly snow doll who once brought messages from Kris Kringle to children and shoppers at Maison Blanche on Canal Street, will celebrate his 60th birthday this year, and there is no better place to do it than Canal Street. Before heading back to his new home in City Park, Mr. Bingle will parade in grand fashion--floats, bands, celebrities, snow, merry marchers and even Santa will escort him from the river to Claiborne Avenue and back again. He will even stop briefly for photographs once the parade is over.

An outdoor concert featuring Jeremy Davenport, Rockin' Dopsie Jr., Rebirth Brass Band, Marlon and Stephanie Jordon, Amanda Shaw, James Andrews, and the Batiste Brothers will begin at 12 noon, directly after the parade, at the corner of Canal and Elk Place.

Be there on December 6 to experience the magic of the holidays and the rebirth of Canal Street!
