Christmas Decoration Judging


Mark your calendars for Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Each year, a panel of Patio Planters judges boards the official judging vehicle (everything from a van to a limousine to an antique fire truck) and makes the travels through the Quarter in search of the best holiday decorations ... stopping along the way for food and drink, of course.

Patio Planters encourages everyone to decorate and contribute to the festive atmosphere of the French Quarter. The winners are announced every year on the following Sunday at Caroling in Jackson Square, with presentation of a plaque and a $150 gift certificate to Santa's Quarters on Decatur Street.

The categories are: Best Overall, Best Hotel, Best Commercial, Best Window/Door, Best Balcony, and a new category added in 2011 - Best Residence.In 2014 we instituted the President's Award.
