Christmas music is coming through my speakers and all I can think about is the white stuff falling and me walking hand in hand with one of the three people on earth who can keep me warm no matter what the thermometer is reading. While the snow doesn't usually fall in Las Vegas the holiday spirit is quite strong and it is almost time to celebrate Christmas in the desert. (Don't blame me that the year has flown by) November 12, 2013 you can start your holiday celebrations with the 20th Annual Holiday Cactus Lighting Event at Ethel M Chocolates. From now until the event or until tickets are available you can stop by the Ethel M Chocolate Factory and get a four pack of tickets with a donation of one new, unwrapped toy for a child in need.
This year the event is being hosted by comedian George Wallace he'll help in the lighting ceremony that will make you start your Christmas shopping early. You can also expect holiday performances by MO5AIC and former America’s Got Talent winner, Michael Grimm.
Lucky for you Ethel M Chocolates factory will be open in order for you to get a kick-start on your Christmas shopping as they have plenty of stocking stuffing treats available.
Remember you show up to the Cactus Garden at Ethel M Chocolates with a new unwrapped toy and you will receive a family four pack of tickets for the event that takes place November 12, 2013 at approximately 6pm. More than a half million lights will bring the Cactus Garden to life and all toys donated will go to the annual KLUC Toy Drive.
The Ethel M Cactus Holiday Garden is open from November 13 through January 1, 2014, and the public is always welcome at no charge. The garden will be lit nightly from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
