“Sneaux” Will Fall Next Week at Loyola University New Orleans
The forecast calls for Sneaux! Dreaming of a white Christmas? “Sneaux,” will fall from 6 - 8 p.m. on December 6 at Loyola University New Orleans, 6363 St. Charles Ave., at the University’s annual winter celebration.
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 Marquette Hall and the Horseshoe. The event is free.
Sneaux-balls, sneaux-people and other winter fun is always on tap at this annual crowd-pleaser. Attendees will be able to take photographs with Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the elves while enjoying hot chocolate and cookies and listening to Christmas music.
Throughout the evening, the Loyno Express Train will run, taking riders around Santa’s Workshop, allowing them to meet characters along the way. Attendees will learn about Christmas and holidays around the world. And in keeping with Jesuit values, students may also pen Christmas cards to children in hospitals. Student organizations will sponsor craft tables that will include fun ways for guests to learn about Christmas and other holidays. Food will also be served for purchase from Kolache Kitchen and Iggy Vols; proceeds from Iggy Vols will go towards social justice projects for students.
This year’s event also includes a food and toiletry drive for Iggy’s Cupboard, Loyola’s food pantry located on the lower level of the Danna Student Center. In 2022, over 300 items were collected for the cupboard!
Free parking is available in Loyola’s West Road Garage located on West Road and accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
