According to Santa’s list, one neighborhood is getting a present for being on the nice list — New Orleans East.¬†We think yule love it! (*ahem*)

You read right. According to a Facebook post from New Orleans Councilmember Cyndi Nguyen, who represents the East, the Jingle on the Boulevard Parade will be coming to Eastern New Orleans.

Nguyen’s office said the parade will feature Santa Claus, a variety of holiday characters, marching units and signature throws.

The parade is planned to roll on Saturday, Dec. 15, at noon. Nguyen said the route will start at Saint Maria Goretti Church, go down Crowder to Haynes Boulevard, then turn down Read Boulevard, where it will disband at the Lake Forest Plaza.

The councilwoman also asked residents to pitch in on her post, saying if you would like to be a part of the parade, to call Kelly Derbigny at (504) 658-1050.
