It’s almost impossible to not notice a holiday home on the corner of Atlanta and Duffosat streets in Uptown New Orleans.

Every window is decked out with a “Teddy Bear” movie theme poster, and inside the house it’s loaded with nearly 12-thousand teddy bears.

For the past five years, Owner, Ricky Lenart gives a “Teddy Bear Tour” of his “beary” special home.  The tour is this Saturday from 1-6 pm, and Sunday from 1-8 pm.

Proceeds from the tour go to help The West Bank Art Guild.
