The master-planned community of Summerlin® officially kicks off the 2018 holiday season on Friday, November 16 at 6 p.m. at Downtown Summerlin® with the arrival of Santa Claus; the debut of an all NEW holiday parade; and the opening of Rock Rink, an outdoor public ice-skating rink. A special Hanukkah celebration in partnership with Jewish Nevada and the JCC is slated for Dec. 9 at Downtown Summerlin.

The parade, which runs every Friday and Saturday night through December 22, is inspired by traditional holiday themes with fan-favorite and family-friendly holiday music, dance, colorful costumes and spectacular visuals that make the parade a must-see. All shows are free and open to the general public, and festivities take place on Park Centre Drive. Parade-goers are encouraged to arrive a few minutes early to secure a viewing spot.

Santa Claus’ Chalet, presented by Pardee Homes, is located in the Macy’s Promenade through Dec. 24. It features a forest of mountain pines and playful deer, sculpted in hues of winter white, red, and green that transforms the location to a magical mountain chalet, creating a festive environment for children and adults, alike, to whisper their holiday wishes to Santa. Photo packages start at $24.99. Santa offers photos with pets on Tuesdays through Dec. 18 between 7 and 9 p.m.

Rock Rink, the premier ice-skating rink located near the Pavilion on The Lawn, also opens on Nov. 16. Through the holidays, it is open nightly from 4 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 4 to 10 p.m. on Friday; 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. Skate rentals start at $15, and all ages are welcome. A festive holiday train runs through January 21. Rides are $4.00 per adult and child.

Downtown Summerlin will partner with Jewish Nevada and the JCC to host a one-night Hanukkah celebration on Dec. 9. Family-friendly festivities include the lighting of the Menorah, family skate night, entertainment, kid’s activities and hot cocoa with lite bites.

“Downtown Summerlin is the place to be this holiday season,” said Halee Harczynski, Director, Marketing, Downtown Summerlin. “There is so much to see and do and it’s the perfect place to gather with family and friends to create holiday memories – regardless of how you celebrate the season. This year’s festivities, which include a partnership with Jewish Nevada and the JCC, once again provide a strong celebratory opportunity for the Jewish community in Las Vegas.”
