Dash Through the Snow at Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens Now Through January 3

Las Vegas (December 9, 2015) - Tis’ the season to deck the halls inside Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Glistening snowflakes, a family of arctic animals and festive ornaments will charm guests in a winter wonderland, now through January 3, 2016.

Upon entering the East Garden guests will be in “awe” of the 14-foot-tall snow tunnel framed with bright red Poinsettias and white Silver Tip Fir trees. Backlit silhouettes and delicate snowflakes will encourage guests to get lost in the holiday season as they walk through the elaborately designed tunnel.

Located prominently in the center bed, the display’s focal point is a 42-foot White Fir holiday tree, adorned with 7,000 twinkling white lights and 2,500 colorful ornaments. Standing guard at each corner of the garden are four animated toy soldiers robotically moving in unison. New to the Conservatory, but a staple of the season, four 10-foot stockings stuffed with wrapped trinkets hang from the ceiling, while a 12-foot Jack-in-the–box, surrounded by gifts and golden ribbon, sways back and forth.

The North Garden will transport guests to the arctic with a mother polar bear made of 12,000 white carnations and a pair of twin cubs that play among the icebergs. Joining the polar bears is an inquisitive family of penguins poking out of their igloos. A live camera mounted to a mechanical toy train travels through the bed capturing special moments shared between family and friends, which are displayed on a nearby monitor. Suspended high above the Conservatory and surrounded by intricate snowflakes, an illuminated moon keeps watch over the polar bears and penguins day in and day out.

In the South Bed, visitors will find two 12-foot snow globes, each showcasing a classic winter scene. In one globe, two ice skaters glide across a frozen pond with only the light of a lamppost and in the other, carolers rejoice and sing around a gleaming holiday tree. To complete the classic holiday theme, a gently rocking wooden horse rests at the center of the garden among two snow flocked trees and Poinsettias.

Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is complimentary to the public and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
