Illuminating the West Bank with Inaugural Lighting of the Oaks Event

by | Apr 11, 2024

Councilman Deano Bonano and State Senator Patrick Connick recently hosted the first annual Lighting of the Oaks in Marrero. The thirteen preserved live oak trees that line the Hope Haven walking track were illuminated, creating a canopy of trees and lights for residents to enjoy. This event marked the first time a walking light trail or event was brought to the West Bank. The Lighting of the Oaks event is just the beginning of new holiday traditions on the West Bank, with the goal of bringing unincorporated Jefferson Parish lights similar to those seen at Christmas in the Park in the coming years.
