Time flies and we’ve made it through most of the year, guys (woo hoo)! So you know what means: Winter in Sin City is already in full swing. ‘Tis the season for Vegas holiday shows and events. Check out all of our fabulous festivities:

Christmas Shows in Las Vegas 2019

This may be the desert, but Vegas knows how to bring on the winter spirit. (And honestly, it’s been chilly so this element adds to the festivities.) If you’re on the Strip in search for some holiday cheer, look no further than The LINQ Promenade.

Whether you’re as cheerful as Will Ferrell in “Elf” or feeling grumpy like Scrooge, strolling through the Promenade will elevate your mood this holiday season. Check out everything you can enjoy in Vegas this winter:

Holiday MAGIC 

No need to feel sad if you miss out on the carolers (or even if you’re the one doing the caroling). From now through Christmas, you can sing along with The LINQ Promenade’s show, “Holiday Magic,” performing nightly at the top of every hour from 6 – 9 p.m. Enjoy a festive show, featuring both seasonal songs mixed with hip-hop favorites. The show also includes LED-costumed dancers, acrobats and street elves.

Make sure you stick around – the show finishes off with snow at the end. Starting Dec. 23, there will be additional shows added to the schedule.

You can also catch a show on wheels. Watch the strolling piano (complete with a contortionist) every Monday and Tuesday from 6 – 9 p.m.

Not Your Traditional Holiday Tree 

Look, there’s nothing wrong with pulling your fake tree out of the garage (this blogger actually still has to do that) or picking a real one out from a lot. But The LINQ Promenade’s tree has some oomph. Talk about the ultimate tree flex. Stop by the Promenade’s 12-foot-tall tree and marvel at its interactive tree light display. You can actually create your own personalized light show, straight from your phone’s playlist. The technology includes 16 strands of lights, which twinkle in syncopation with music from your phone. Now we’re tempted to make playlist solely for this event.

The tree is located across from the Promenade’s fountains, close to the holiday show stage.

Holiday In The Sky 

While you’re here, you might as well add a dash of adventure to your LINQ Promenade visit. For a limited time, you can buy a High Roller wheel and FLY LINQ zip line bundle for only $50. This is a great gift to yourself, or even for you and your traveling buddy. (That’s one name to cross off your shopping list.) You can only snag this deal at the box office, so make sure it’s your first stop when you’re in town!

If you’re here ringing in 2020, check out all the festivities for New Year’s Eve in Vegas. You can even celebrate a special Roaring ’20s party inside the High Roller wheel. Special New Year’s Eve packages are available.
