Decorating the Nation's Tallest Christmas Tree @ M Resort
Through the wind, rain and 35 degree temperatures, we're still decorating our tree. As many of you know, our 109 ft. White Fir arrived early last week after a 900+ mile trip from Oregon on the largest allowable flatbed truck. It took a team of more than a dozen people to hoist the 22,000 pound tree into our piazza.
Well, the day it got hoisted into place was the day the real work began. Our amazing team of decorators went to work to "make it pretty" and decorate it with thousands of lights and ornaments. Below are some great photos taken today of some of the decorations that have been put up. The tree will be completely lit with white lights and adorned with red, green and gold ornaments.
We can't wait to see it shimmer and shine this Saturday night. Don't forget to join us for the lighting of the Nation's Tallest Christmas Tree this Saturday. Doors open at 5pm with the official lighting at 6:30pm. Make sure to dress warm! We'll have hot chocolate and Christmas cookies available too and a special thanks to Helen C. Cannon Jr High School, Las Vegas Academy's Advanced Women Choir, Dance Zone and Phat Stad for performing live on our piazza for the event.
Don't forget to bring a canned food item, gently used coat or new, un-wrapped toy to help us support Three Square, Catholic Charities and Toys for Tots. We offered the charities a cabana to decorate and we can't wait to see them!
We'll also have gingerbread houses created by Clark County elementary schools on display too. Thank you to all the teachers - we loved your support and willingness to participate in our gingerbread house contest.
