Louisiana Travel | Idlewild Plantation Christmas Lighting Driving Tour BY: Susan Arcement

A winter wonderland of lights awaits you at Patterson’s Kemper Williams Park in December. The driving tour winds through a fantasyland of lighted Santas, elves and reindeers. A train loaded with presents chugs along. Being in South Louisiana, of course you’ll see a riverboat and shrimp boats float by. A lighted Wedell-Williams Model 44 plane pays tribute to Patterson’s aviation heritage.

Be sure to roll down your windows to catch Christmas music playing along the mile-long route.
