Sunset Wonderland Holiday Festival Rings in Good Cheer 

       Sunset Park, which recently went through a two-year, $11.7 million dollar renovation, will host the Sunset Wonderland Holiday Festival.  

       The festive extravaganza will feature an ice skating rink, holiday activities for all ages, horse & buggy hay rides around the lake, crafts, holiday performances from local youth groups, a Ferris wheel, a photo opportunity with Santa and so much more! The events begin on Friday, Dec. 6 and runs through Sunday, Dec. 22 at 2601 E Sunset Road. Sunset Wonderland is open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is FREE to experience the magic of Sunset Wonderland and all ages are invited to attend and make this event a holiday tradition.  

       “This event has all the makings of a wonderful new holiday tradition for Las Vegas-area families,” said Commissioner Mary Beth Scow, whose district includes the popular regional park. “I invite everyone to get into the spirit of the season by enjoying this holiday festival.”  

       The ice skating sessions take place every hour, on the hour, in a 45-minute block for $8 per hour including skate rental (senior, adult or child). Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster or at the Sunset Park Reservations Office located on the northeast side of the lake.  

       Families, local businesses and organizations are invited to sponsor a Christmas tree in the “Holiday Wonderland of Trees.” Showcase the meaning of the holidays and compete in the “Best Of” tree contest. The winner chosen will represent the entire event and be featured as the official Sunset Wonderland Holiday Tree. Applications for tree entry and craft/vendors are available here.    

       Sunset Wonderland Holiday Festival is sponsored by CBS Radio, Fox 5, the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Home Depot, Findlay Chevrolet and Tuff Shed.
