Weather Forecasters Call for “Sneaux” at Loyola University New Orleans

Loyola press release - December 6, 2016

Let it sneaux, let it sneaux, let it sneaux! Dreaming of a white Christmas? “Sneaux” will fall from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday. Dec. 7, at Loyola University New Orleans, 6363 St. Charles Ave.

The Loyola community – faculty, students, staff, alumni – as well as friends and neighbors are invited to attend the annual event, which takes place on the lawn outside the Marquette Building and Horseshoe. The event is free.

This year, attendees will be able to take photographs with Santa, Mrs. Claus, elves and reindeer and snack on hot chocolate and cookies while listening to Christmas music. Free T-shirts are available for the first 500 students that arrive to the event!

Throughout the evening, the Loyno Express Train will run, taking riders around Santa’s Workshop, allowing them to meet characters along the way. The event will also feature a selection of holiday treats such as egg nog, hot chocolate, Christmas cookies, and s’mores. A create-your-own popcorn station will help to fuel the fun.

Attendees may make keepsake Christmas ornaments to decorate trees at home — or at a Hanukah Celebration table, decorate their own menorah and dreidel.

“Sneaux gives Loyola students and the Uptown New Orleans community a taste of the white Christmas they’ve been dreaming of,” said Associate Director of Student Involvement Courtney Williams. “A signature event, Sneaux is an essential part of our annual Christmas celebration at Loyola.”

Free parking is available in Loyola’s West Road Garage located on West Road and accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
