Ring in the holiday season at Town Square with the arrival of Santa Claus on November 15 at 7 p.m. as he joins his friends in a festive parade and tree lighting celebration.
The parade will feature a variety of holiday characters, including performers from Nevada Ballet Theater’s The Nutcracker. Spectators can see the start of the parade near the West Valet by Yard House, and the parade will end at the Norman Rockwell-inspired Santa house in Town Square Park. Once Santa reaches Town Square Park, he will light the 45-foot Christmas tree and snow will begin to fall. Following the snowfall, children can take photos with Santa inside his house.
To celebrate the holidays, Town Square will be outfitted with Norman Rockwell Holidays, six life-size vignettes which will be on display throughout the center starting November 15. The vignettes are interactive replicas of several covers Norman Rockwell created for The Saturday Evening Post. Informational audio will take visitors on an educational journey back in time, and patrons can enjoy them at no cost.
The holiday season at Town Square will bustle with activities for the whole family. Highlights include:
