The Holidays Start at Sunset

Sunset_Wonderland

Three years after the Gift of Lights decamped for the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, holiday dreaming returns to Sunset Park. From December 6-22, Sunset Wonderland (not to be confused with the elusive Strip project by the same name) will host winter activities including tree decorating, gingerbread house construction, chestnut roasting and performances from local dance and cheer troupes.

The Gift of Lights drive-through event was at Sunset Park for nine years; it became a popular tradition, but also generated some epic lines of cars snaking down Eastern Avenue waiting to enter. Its departure coincided with the start of major renovations at Sunset. Now that those renovations are complete, the park was ready to bring back a big holiday event, Las Vegas style, complete with an EZ Glide 350 synthetic ice-skating rink.

Free. Open 4-10 p.m. Mon–Fri and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Sat-Sun.

At his State of the University address in September, UNLV President Neal Smatresk stated his biggest goal for the school: to make it a top research university within 15 years. Now he’s announced that he will leave at the end of the year.
