The City of Mandeville and the Old Mandeville Business Association (OMBA) present A Christmas Past Festival on Saturday, December 9, 2017, all along Girod Street in Mandeville. The festival offers an old-time holiday atmosphere with arts and crafts and jewelry vendors, food and beverage booths, live musical performances, Children's Village, train rides and pet adoptions. The event is 9am to 3pm throughout historic old Mandeville.

After the festival, be sure to head over to the lakefront, 4-6pm, for Winter on the Water, taking place along Lakeshore Drive from Pontchartrain Yacht Harbor to the Gazebo. The fun begins with Santa's walking parade at 4:00pm at the harbor and concludes at the Gazebo, where Mandeville Mayor Don Villere welcomes performers on the quaint stage, and then conducts the lighting of the beautiful lakefront live oaks. The event concludes with the annual boat parade. Remember to bring cameras for pictures with Santa!
