Thousands of colorful, eco-friendly LED lights will greet guests at the family-friendly celebration, which will feature food, live nightly entertainment, cookie decorating, photos with Santa Claus, and train and reindeer (pony) rides for the little ones.
New to this year’s celebration is a 1,000-square foot skating rink in the Springs Preserve’s Courtyard Plaza. For an additional cost, holiday revelers can don skates and glide across the “ice” – right in the heart of Las Vegas.
The Holiday Spectacular will also feature “snow” in the Springs Amphitheater while a Christmas tree, Hanukkah menorah and Kwanzaa displays will help set the holiday spirit. The Springs Cafe by the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas will offer holiday-inspired goodies, while visitors can shop for “green” holiday presents at the gift shop.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for children 5 to 12 and free for those 4 and under. Springs Preserve members receive half-off regular-priced admission. Ice skating is an additional $5 per person for 20 minutes of skating. Tickets will be available at the gate or in advance at www.springspreserve.org.
The Holiday Spectacular is made possible in part through the generous contributions of our sponsor, MGM Resorts International.
