The annual pilgrimage of costumed revelers through the streets of the city’s Warehouse District. This year’s “run” features a new South Pole at Apres Lounge on Fulton Street. Costumed Santas will then make the fun run to the North Pole at Generations Hall with live entertainment from Category 6 and an extravagant costume contest with entrants from both the nice and naughty list.

The city’s most raucous holiday tradition, listed as one of the “Top 50 events every New Orleanian should experience,” kicks off with holiday food and specialty drinks from 3 to 6 p.m. at the “South Pole” located at Apres Lounge, at 608 Fulton Street. At 6 p.m., the crowd of Santas will begin the five-block “Fun Run” to the “North Pole” located at Generations Hall, at 310 Andrew Higgins Dr. followed by the city’s largest holiday costume contest at 8 p.m. Registration for the event opens at 11 a.m. on the day of the event at Apres, but registration is available now online at A special discount of two tickets for the price of one is available for a limited time
