Revitalized Holiday of Lights Celebration Returns to Koop Drive in December

Parish President Mike Cooper, in partnership with the Tammany Trace Foundation, is overjoyed to announce the revitalization of the Holiday of Lights, a yuletide celebration in December on Koop Drive.

“The Holiday of Lights brought immense joy to our families for many years,” said President Cooper. “We are so excited to bring back the magic and jubilation, while giving our families a local celebration of the holiday season. I look forward to the festivities, including food, musical talents of our children, and of course, Santa Claus, returning to Koop Drive in December.”

The festivities start on Friday, December 2, 2022 with an opening parade at 6 p.m. Performances will take place on December 2, 3, 9 and 10.

“The Holiday of Lights has been a staple in St. Tammany Parish for more than two decades,” said Bruce Wainer, President of the Tammany Trace Foundation. “I am proud of the efforts taken to return the celebration to full glory. We welcome all families, friends and visitors to the Holiday of Lights to spread holiday cheer together.”

The Holiday of Lights will showcase the remarkable talents of the youth in our community. If you would like to register your choir, band or dance team to perform, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
