Mystic Falls Park Makes the Season Merry and Bright with All-New, Holiday-Inspired Décor

Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall is lighting up the holiday season with the return of Mystic Falls Park’s festive seasonal display, featuring all-new décor and more than 26,000 points of light for visitors to enjoy now through Friday, January 1, 2021.  

The holiday-themed attraction at Mystic Falls Park is a time-honored tradition that goes back to 1994. This year, families can experience the indoor atrium’s new theme, featuring animated teddy bears that have come to life and can be seen playing, dancing and decorating the park. The plush, animatronic bears were handmade this year by a family in Italy, and have traveled from Italy to Spain, Portugal, and across the United States to make it to Mystic Falls Park.

The whimsical winter display presents an 18-foot Christmas tree decorated with glistening red and gold ornaments and 5,300 twinkling lights, topped with a starburst tree topper. Garland-wrapped lampposts, streamers and wreaths fill the atrium, embellished with hundreds of lights, ornaments and red holiday bows. 

As guests stroll through the park, they can also enjoy seeing blankets of snow, animatronic characters wearing Santa hats, giant pinecones and beautifully wrapped gift boxes. Mystic Falls Park’s beloved gazebo is also covered in snow and decorated with garlands, a sparkling icicle trimming and large candy canes at the entrance. In total, the new, lit up décor features 26,350 points of light and approximately 13,175 feet, or 2.5 miles, of wire.

In addition to enjoying the free holiday attraction, families can conveniently drop off their letters for Santa in Santa’s mailbox located under the gazebo inside Mystic Falls Park. Families can also experience the park’s new holiday décor from home by tuning into the attraction’s live webcam at
