Festivus

Grand Bazaar Shops invites Las Vegas locals and visitors alike to get their holiday party started with its second annual Festivus Gathering on Dec. 23. Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa get all the attention but Festivus is important too. This cherished holiday has been steeped in tradition since 1997, when it was first made famous on the hit television show “Seinfeld.”

The center will feature the appropriate décor including a Festivus pole and the popular tradition of “feats of strength.” Guests will be strength tested by hitting a high striker to see how high the puck will rise and who can get closest to the bell. Complimentary photos will be taken of participants completing the challenges. Visitors will also have an opportunity to “air their grievances” by writing their complaints from the past year on a sign perfect for picture taking and sharing with friends and family. Additional fun-filled activities will also include complimentary caricatures and temporary tattoos.
