Ah'm gonna be in town da Sattidy befoah Christmas. Aw dere any good light displays besahds Copelands and Christmas unna da Oaks?

Metairie street...
There's that street (actually a couple of them) in Kenner where all the houses do elaborate displays with lights, cars, Christmas villages, and wild juxtapositions of characters sacred, secular, and Disney. I seem to recall that it's just off West Esplanade in the section of streets named for states -- Kentucky, Massachusetts, etc. Tacky but fun.

I'm thinking it's Tennessee St./Ave. and some surrounding streets around there off W. Esplanade.

Celebration in Kennah...
It's also on Maryland between 33rd & West Esplanade. It's gawjus.

Also Texas Ave. If you go to maps and type in Maryland Dr. Kenner, LA, you can see the roof of my house.
