From a partridge in a pear tree to twelve drummers drumming, downtown Covington will be aglow with holiday images this December with “Covington’s Twelve Days of Christmas” lighted displays.
Twelve lighted silhouettes depicting larger-than-life images from the traditional Old English Christmas carol, 12 Days of Christmas, are exhibited at various locales in the downtown historic district. The public is invited to stroll through the city to view “four calling birds, three French hens,” and other familiar images from the well-known Christmas carol. The images will be illuminated seven days a week from dusk to dawn from December 10, 2021 through January 6, 2022.
A new holiday tradition in Covington, this family-friendly activity appeals to all ages. In a show of community spirit befitting the holiday season, the public is cordially invited to share their Covington’s Twelve Days of Christmas adventure on social media, tagging the City of Covington, City of Covington-Office of Cultural Arts & Events, and St. Tammany Parish Tourist and Convention Commission (Louisiana Northshore) to spread holiday cheer.
“Covington’s Twelve Days of Christmas,” sponsored by the City, is free and open to the public. For more information call the Office of Cultural Arts and Events at (985) 892-1873.
