Faubourg St. John neighbor Annie Celano says, “Kudos and Thanks to District A Councilmember Susan Guidry….. She got the city to finally replace the light pole at Esplanade and N. Dupre. It was knocked over in an accident a year and half ago. After many calls to 311, I finally emailed Ms. Guidry’s office and it was replaced today. An early Christmas gift!”

Christmas night, I took a long stroll around Faubourg St. John taking random photos of lights neighbors had put up for the holiday. What was going to be a thirty minute walk turned into a four hour hike. While I did get a bunch of photos, they do not fully represent the enormity of enthusiasm Faubourg St. John residents have for the holiday season. So, if you would like to have your house added to this post or would like to have your street represented, please send high quality photos of the holiday lights on your street to firstname.lastname@example.org.
