“It isn’t the holidays without a visit to Downtown Summerlin,” said Halee Harczynski, senior marketing director, Downtown Summerlin. “We’ll be lighting up the property with festive décor all season long; and we’re bringing back all the popular traditions Las Vegas families have grown to love. We can’t wait to celebrate the season with everyone.”
