The Park Celebrates the Holiday Season with Festive Tree-Lighting and Vegas Golden Knights Watch Party Nov. 29

The Holiday Experience at The Park will ring in the season with Vegas Golden Knights mascot Chance and Santa Claus at a tree-lighting ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 29. The fun-for-the-whole-family event will feature in-arena hosts Big D and Mark Shunock, a performance by the Golden Aces cheer squad and a raucous parade led by The Knight Line through The Park. After the tree is lit, visitors will rally for the home team at an official watch party on Toshiba Plaza.

Holiday cheer will fill the air in Toshiba Plaza at 5 p.m., where visitors can snack on complimentary hot chocolate and cookies while they groove to the DJ’s high-energy remixes of holiday classics. At 5:30 p.m., Shunock and Big D will take the stage as The Knight Line and game-day parade crew marches and drums their way to Toshiba Plaza through The Park. The fun-filled program will build to the big moment when Chance and Santa Claus, the men of the hour, lead the crowd in a countdown to the lighting of the stunning 80-foot holiday tree.

Afterward, Santa will stick around to take photos with families, selecting a spot in front of the sparkling tree for a festive backdrop. Visitors can bring blankets and lawn chairs for the watch party, as well as indulge in refreshments from around the neighborhood. From Nov. 29 throughout the month of December, several quaint cottages will sell a variety of treats that evoke a bustling European marketplace – including German-style sausages from The Park favorite Beerhaus; candy apples and s’mores at Bonanno’s Sweets & Treats; and a collection of warm winter cocktails for guests 21 and older, such as hot cocoa, mulled spiced wine and hot toddies. Additional refreshments will be available for purchase on Toshiba Plaza during the watch party.

The Holiday Experience at The Park will bring cheer to the neighborhood each Friday – Sunday in December as well as select special event days from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. Guests can wander through the festively decked Park and pose for holiday snaps with Instagram-able installations, such as a towering “LOVE” sign and enormous ornaments glittering with lights.

ARIA’s 200,000-Square-Foot Convention Center Expansion Opens; Introduces Innovative New Executive Meeting Lounge

ARIA’s 200,000-Square-Foot Convention Center Expansion Opens;

Introduces Innovative New Executive Meeting Lounge

LEED Gold-Certified Convention Center Now Features 500,000 Square Feet of Space

One of North America’s premier destinations for large-scale, tech-forward conferences and events, ARIA Resort & Casino has opened an additional 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting space across four stories. The approximately $170 million expansion is highlighted by stunning indoor/open-air verandas with retractable windows and dramatic views of The Park and T-Mobile Arena

The new space, seamlessly integrated with ARIA’s existing convention center, incorporates features such as outdoor offerings, views, additional natural light and non-traditional meeting areas. For those wanting an exclusive gathering area, the discreetly marked Cypress Executive Lounge is a Las Vegas first that will exceed expectations. The 3,000-square-foot space features a fully stocked pantry, 3 private suites for personal workspaces and one-on-one meetings, a conference room with flexible furniture set ups for up to 30, and a beautiful study for toasting to a successful event.

Also within the 200,000-square-foot expansion, guests will discover ballrooms with built-in stages, an exclusive loading dock with megavator for events requiring sizable displays, versatile indoor-outdoor breakout rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and ample pre-function spaces. The top floor is one of Las Vegas’ most distinctive meeting venues: a vast ballroom with two impressive open-air verandas that can accommodate receptions for up to 2,000 attendees. For those looking for special off-site options, The Park, T-Mobile Arena and Toshiba Plaza are just steps away and provide a variety of settings, entertainment and food & beverage options.

Now with a total of 500,000 square feet of convention space and diverse options within the neighborhood, ARIA can accommodate larger convention groups and attract new business.

“Convention business demand at ARIA continues to grow, especially as planners discover we can accommodate larger groups, allowing us to book into 2020 and beyond,” said Tony Yousfi, ARIA’s vice president of Sales. “With this expansion, we can better service our clients’ needs and increase the spectrum of events we can host.”

Another differentiator for the AAA Five Diamond ARIA is that the new convention space maintains MGM Resorts’ commitment to build new venues to LEED Gold standards or better, creating one of the most expansive high-end, environmentally friendly meeting facilities in the world. Already an established leader in this area, ARIA has earned the prestigious five keys from Green Key Global’s Eco-Rating Program.

Client responses to the expansion:

Muriel Wilson, Virtuoso’s Director of Events said, “Virtuoso’s events have been growing year over year, and with that growth comes the demand for more meeting space.  Thankfully, we have a fantastic working relationship with ARIA that has been built on a foundation of collaboration.  Since our events have pushed beyond the industry’s traditional setup and design, the ARIA team has worked with us to use their meeting space more creatively, and we are proud to be one of the first shows to take advantage of their new expansion. In addition, with so much renovation in Las Vegas right now plus Virtuoso’s strong focus on sustainability, ARIA is a natural fit with their LEED certification and daily commitment to conserving natural resources.”

David Hansen, Virtuoso’s Senior Vice President of Events, elaborated, “When selecting a location for our largest annual event, only the best will suffice for the world’s top and most discerning travel advisors from countries across the globe.  ARIA’s remarkable new space has elevated their already impressive game to a whole new level, which will allow us to continue hosting Virtuoso Travel Week, luxury travel’s preeminent show, in Las Vegas.”

Matt Thompson, executive vice president of Worldwide Field Operations at Adobe, said, “We’ve enjoyed a strong working relationship with ARIA for several years, hosting our annual sales conference at the property. The experience for our meeting and our employees has been first-rate every time. With the convention center expansion – alongside our continued growth – we know ARIA will continue to accommodate our group now and into the future.”

Stephan Gray, Vice President of Corporate Marketing for Kronos Incorporated, said, “After several very successful years at ARIA during which our customer conference continued to grow in size and complexity, we unfortunately found ourselves pushing the limits on available space. With the new expansion, we were able to reconsider our multi-year plan, keeping our customers at a Five Diamond resort that offers superior meeting space and top-notch conference and catering teams.” 

ARIA has received numerous accolades including being named among the top 10 meeting resorts in North America in 2017 by Cvent, an industry leader specializing in meetings management technology.

 For the second consecutive year, Oktoberfest at The Park will awaken Las Vegas’ German spirit as the fun festival returns September 28 – October 1. Located at The Park, Las Vegas’ premier dining and entertainment district nestled between T-Mobile Arena and New York-New York Hotel & Casino, the event will offer merrymakers the opportunity to revel in Bavarian tradition with flowing beers, savory bites, entertaining games and cheerful folk sounds in celebration of the world’s largest beer festival.

Bier und Brot!
Upon arrival, guests may purchase a commemorative liter stein – available at Beerhaus, The Park’s festive beer hall. Ticket booths in the venue will sell the stein for $15 empty and $25 filled; refills will be available for $14.  The Park’s beer-centric celebration will feature authentic brews from Hacker-Pschorr and Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu, two breweries permitted to serve beer at the original Oktoberfest, as well as Oktoberfest-style selections from familiar breweries such as Sierra Nevada, Goose Island and Sam Adams.

Quintessential Bavarian snacks served at tents throughout The Park, as well as at Beerhaus, will include:

  • Frikadellen – Pan-fried hamburgers served with new boiled potatoes
  • BrezenSoft pretzels with spicy mustard and pickles
  • Schweineschnitzel – Pork schnitzel sandwiches with fries

Each day, guests who successfully complete all games will be entered into a drawing for worthy prizes.

No Oktoberfest is complete without the Chicken Dance, a noble tradition rumored to date back to the original Volkfest’s commencement. Those looking to shake their tail feathers may join the silent chicken dance competition in which guests will break out their best dancing birdie impersonation while wearing wireless music-playing headphones in an effort to be named Oktoberfest Chicken Dance Champion.

Musik und Tanz!
Revelers can enjoy live folk music daily by HofBrau Boys. As the party continues throughout the evening, attendees can keep the party alive while listening to live entertainment by local bands such as The District and Generations.

LEGO® Brick Sculptures

Artist Nathan Sawaya brings Interactive “Park People”
Installation to The Park

lego lego-red

 LEGO bricks will come to life at The Park on October 14 for a one-of-a-kind art installation constructed by renowned artist Nathan Sawaya. 

Visitors to The Park, MGM Resorts International’s newly opened outdoor dining and entertainment district on the Las Vegas Strip, are invited to discover Sawaya’s new installation PARK PEOPLE featuring large-scale monochromatic human figures crafted entirely from LEGO bricks and situated curiously on elegant wooden benches. Strategically placed throughout The Park, the nine brightly colored sculptures are all taking their individual respites, allowing guests to sidle up next to these “secret keepers” and bare their souls, or take selfies with their new LEGO friends.  

“The versatile open-air space of The Park allows us to offer a variety of fun and fresh experiences so guests have something new to discover each time they return,” said Don Thrasher, president of Park District Holdings. “PARK PEOPLE is a playful installation and we look forward to seeing how our visitors interact with these unique pieces.”

Award-winning artist Sawaya began his professional career as a corporate lawyer, but after years of mergers and acquisitions, he decided to pursue his artistic passion full time and became the first contemporary artist to use the popular toy as an art medium. His success quickly took off and his exhibitions have broken attendance records around the world, inspiring both adults and children alike to interact and admire his playful pieces.

“Most of my artwork tours the globe in THE ART OF THE BRICK exhibition, and is only experienced indoors. One of my primary goals as an artist is to make art as accessible as possible, so it was time to conceive a new collection for the outdoors,” said Sawaya. “It’s only fitting that we bring PARK PEOPLE to The Park. I hope locals and visitors alike come check them out and sit for a bit.”

Showcasing his work in Las Vegas for the first time, Sawaya’s installation will be on display until December 30. For more information please visit theparkvegas.com.
