I’m a huge fan of chocolate, in fact, it may be my favorite food. I also love the holidays, so why not combine the two this Tuesday at the Holiday Cactus Garden Lighting Ceremony at Ethel M.
Kick off your holiday season at Ethel M Chocolates 26th annual Holiday Cactus Garden Lighting Ceremony, featuring over 1 million holiday lights. This spectacular FREE attraction is lit up nightly starting Tuesday, November 5th– Sunday, January 5th at sundown until 10pm.
This year, the Holiday Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, November 5th will feature Matt Franco, George Wallace, Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel and more! The Ceremony and Entertainment start at 5pm and go until 7pm. This event is FREE and open to the public. They would like anyone interested in attending the event to please bring a new unwrapped toy donation to assist HELP of Southern Nevada or a non-perishable food item(s) for Three Square Food Bank. There will be bins set out on the night of the event for you to contribute your donation.
