Bellagio kicks off the holidays with tree lighting

Posted: Updated:

Bellagio's Conservatory and Botanical Gardens transform into a winter wonderland this evening, starting at 4 p.m.

The transformation kicks off with the lighting of a 45-foot tree, with 13,500 lights and more than 2,500 ornaments.

Other features will include oversized toy soldiers, a floral holiday card, faux baby penguins and floral polar bears with fur coats made from more than 35,000 white carnations.

A gingerbread village, created by Bellagio's pastry team, completes the wonderland.

Carolers will belt out holiday classics from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. nightly, followed by harpists from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Like almost everything else on the strip, the display is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is free, and will run through Jan. 5.

The Bellagio is located at 3600 Las Vegas Blvd., South.
