Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall will light up its celebrated winter display at Mystic Falls Park on Wednesday, Nov. 22 at its annual tree lighting ceremony hosted by Boyd Gaming Chairman Bill Boyd. The holiday attraction featuring a Winter Wonderland theme and holiday-inspired laser light show will be available for visitors to enjoy through Jan. 1.
Each year, the Mystic Falls Park Light and Water Show transforms just before Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season. The time-honored tradition goes back to 1994, with decorations beginning in Sam’s Town’s porte-cochere and decorative snowflakes leading guests through the property to Mystic Falls Park. Garland streams, wreath-adorned lampposts and snow-covered trees fill the atrium, and decor offers guests a glimpse inside Santa’s workshop, from elves making toys to loading up Santa’s sleigh with goodies for children.
A nine-minute laser light show is the centerpiece of the display featuring a variety of classic holiday songs, like “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Let It Snow,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and “Frosty the Snowman.” Performances run every hour, between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Cowboy Santa will also join in the festivities by visiting Mystic Falls Park gazebo beginning Nov. 24 on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 8:30 p.m. Cowboy Santa will visit Sam’s Town through Friday, Dec. 23.
Sam’s Town is also bringing back its annual tradition of hosting a cell phone drive for Cell Phones for Soldiers. Guests are encouraged to bring cell phones and chargers to the B Connected desk or hotel front desk through Wednesday, Nov. 30. Each donated device provides a service member with nearly two and a half hours of free talk time. Guests who donate cell phones will receive one free dining coupon to Firelight Buffet with the purchase of another buffet.
