Santa Claus, in his big red suit, flew in via helicopter to help get into the spirit, once again, with this year’s tree lighting ceremony. The ceremony commences the opening of Opportunity Village’s Magical Forest.
It was a Las Vegas style light show, complete with fireworks and snow.
Special guests at the holiday event included Mayor Carolyn Goodman, Congresswoman Dina Titus, and Cirque Du Soleil cast members.
The Magical Forest is open nightly through Jan. 4, with the exception of Christmas Day.
