Mayor Oscar B. Goodman to Turn on the Holiday Lights

Mayor Oscar B. Goodman will bring holiday cheer to the Fremont Street Experience when he flips the switch to light Las Vegas’ official Christmas tree. The 50-foot tree will be garnished with festive decorations and is set to stand below the 12.5 million lights of the Viva Vision screen. Directly following the ceremony, the Candy & The Canes show will perform, a live song and dance show to holiday music hits.
