Celebrate the season at the Springs Preserve Holiday Spectacular

The Holiday Spectacular will transform the Springs Preserve into a winter wonderland. Bathed in the glow of thousands of colorful, eco-friendly LED lights, the family-friendly celebration will feature tasty treats, holiday arts and crafts, photos with Santa Claus, train and reindeer (pony) rides for the little ones – and snow! The merriment begins the first Saturday evening in December and runs December 4-5, 11-12 and 18-23, from 5 - 9 p.m.

Visitors bringing canned or nonperishable food items will receive $1 off admission; food items will be donated to local charities including: Shade Tree Shelter, Catholic Charities, The Salvation Army, Lutheran Social Services of Southern Nevada, and the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. Springs Preserve members receive 50 percent off admission. Tickets will be available at the gate or may be purchased in advance at www.springspreserve.org. (Price does not include $1 per ticket fee when purchasing on-line.) All activities are included with the full admission price. The Holiday Spectacular is made possible in part through the generous contributions of MGM Resorts International.

During the Holiday Spectacular be sure to stop in at the Springs Cafe by Wolfgang Puck for holiday-inspired goodies, and shop for “green” gifts at the gift shop. Enjoy nightly performances by high school madrigal singers, as well as live holiday music by a wide array of local artists in the Springs Amphitheater:
