On November 16, Ethel M Chocolates will transform their three-acre botanical cactus garden into a winter wonderland with the official lighting of the Ethel M Chocolate’s Annual Holiday Cactus Garden.
In its 18th year, the festive exhibit sits adjacent to the Henderson Ethel M factory and features more than 500,000 sparkly lights, seasonal décor and entertainment. Drawing both residents of Southern Nevada and tourists alike, the family-friendly exhibit is free of charge and open to the public Wednesday, November 16 through Sunday, January 1.
Visitors are invited to wander the garden’s illuminated pathways, while taking in the sights, smells and sounds of the holiday season from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week, excluding Christmas Day.
Throughout the season, local school choirs will perform holiday favorites in the garden and Santa will make appearances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings through December 23. The self-guided factory tour aisle and Ethel M retail space will also be open during Holiday Cactus Garden hours.
