On Wednesday, Nov. 22, Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall lit up its celebrated winter display at Mystic Falls Park with its annual tree lighting ceremony hosted by Boyd Gaming Chairman Bill Boyd.
Las Vegas First Responders Sheriff Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Chief Gregory Cassell of the Clark County Fire Department and Captain Charles Haycox joined Mr. Boyd in flipping the ceremonial switch to light the atrium.
Each year, Mystic Falls Park turns into a whimsical winter wonderland just before Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season, a time-honored tradition going back to 1994. During the annual ceremony, Sam’s Town recognizes its nation’s and community’s heroes.
This year Mr. Boyd thanked each of the first responders and their teams for their efforts before the celebration.
