Bellagio Conservatory Becomes Winter Wonderland | Home & Garden
The holiday season means a changing of the decorations at the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens.
The new winter wonderland display will be finished and open to visitors Friday. A 42-foot Shasta White Fir will be at the center of the display. The giant tree will be covered in more than 1,700 silver and gold ornaments. It will also be lit up with more than 13,000 lights.The tree will be surrounded by thousands of red poinsettias and 24 bells will hang from the conservatory ceiling.
“The winter display at Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is our most popular display of the year, exhibiting the spirit and traditions of the holiday season,” said Randy Morton, President and COO of Bellagio. “Each day more than 22,000 visitors visit the Conservatory to enjoy this spectacular setting and commemorate a special time of year.”
This year visitors will also see animated penguins ice skating and hard at work building an igloo. In the north garden, a display will feature three topiary polar bears made with thousands of white carnations.
The holiday display will be open through January 2. The annual Chinese New Year display will follow.
