Christmas Eve Bonfire Adventure Tour

Return to » Holiday Tours

Celebrate a time honored Louisiana tradition - the lighting of the bonfires on the banks of the Mississippi River!  The Bonfire Adventure Tour includes round-trip narrated motor coach transportation and a guided tour of the San Francisco Plantation, built in 1855 and reported to be the most opulent plantation house in North America. It is a galleried house of the Creole open suite style, nestled under centuries old Live Oaks, and contains one of the finest antique collections in the country.  This house inspired the novel “ Steamboat Gothic” written by Frances Parkinson Keyes. A traditional Christmas dinner will be served on the property. 

A police escort will then accompany our “sleigh of coaches” to view the bonfires that light the way for Papa Noel (our Cajun Santa Claus) to bayou country.  For many years this Cajun community has built mammoth wooden structures such as cabins, tepees, & riverboats along the Mississippi River levee.  Some walking is necessary.  Come see the "feux de joie" (fires of joy)!  [Some walking is necessary.]

The BonfireAdventure Tour includes the guided motor coach tour, eggnog, a guided plantation tour, dinner, taxes and meal gratuities.
