The LINQ is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Fans from around the world gathered at The LINQ Promenade on Saturday, Nov. 21 to welcome international superstar Britney Spears as she officially kicked off the holiday season with a special tree lighting ceremony (Photo credit: Denise Truscello / WireImage).
Hundreds of guests cheered as Britney took the stage to flip the switch on a 30-foot Christmas tree, decked out in red and gold décor, along with hundreds of dazzling white lights. The ceremony also featured a holiday choir performance from Las Vegas’ Doral Academy while the Fern Adair Conservatory for the Arts got the crowd pumped up with a performance to Britney Spears’ “My Only Wish (This Year).” The night wasn’t complete without a stop from Santa and his Elves who handed out gifts to attendees.
