The holidays are a bustling time for Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall, as the resort has once again transformed its Mystic Falls Laser Light and Water Show into a winter wonderland experience, complete with weekly visits by Cowboy Santa (above with Mrs. Claus).
The recently renovated, pioneer-themed Mystic Falls Park Light and Water Show, has once again transformed into a popular winter wonderland for the holidays. A tree-lighting celebration took place on November 23, when Boyd Gaming Executive Chairman Bill Boyd, Sam’s Town Vice President and General Manager John Sou, LVCVA Host Committee Chairman Oscar B. Goodman and Cowboy Santa flipped the switch on the first run of the holiday show.
The Sam’s Town winter wonderland experience begins in the valet porte-cochere, with festive lighting and decorative snowflakes leading to Mystic Falls Park. Garland streams, wreath adorned lampposts and white light and snow-covered trees fill the atrium, while Santa’s workshop takes residence at the gazebo.
Poinsettias, red garland, ice crystals add to the themed visuals, while the main fountain will host an ice sculpture. Lighted sculpture polar bears, along with indoor snow, create a whimsical magical winter wonderland experience in the heart of the Boulder Strip.
The free 15-minute winter laser light spectacular will take place at 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. nightly through January 1.
Sam’s Town hosts Santa Claus this holiday season, decked out in venue-appropriate cowboy gear, from now through December 23. Santa will appear on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Photos will be available from $11-17.
At the lighting event, Sam’s Town also announced the results of its “Cell Phones for Soldiers” campaign. From November 1 through 23, Sam’s Town collected more than 1,400 cell phones and chargers. Each phone donated to the program provides an hour of talk time to soldiers abroad.
