"Tis The Season" For Ethel M's Annual Holiday Cactus Festivities

Famed chocolatier, Ethel M Chocolates, will once again light up the night with its 22nd Annual Holiday Cactus Garden on Tuesday, Nov. 10 from 5-8 p.m. The countdown to the lighting of more than half a million colorful lights will take place at approximately 6 p.m. at the Henderson Factory and Cactus Garden location.

Recognized as the ultimate community holiday kickoff event in Southern Nevada, the Holiday Cactus Lighting is widely supported by local entertainers and personalities. One of Las Vegas’ favorite radio hosts, Mercedes of MIX 94.1, will emcee the event again this year with holiday entertainment provided by Las Vegas Strip performers Human Nature and the Jabbawockeez as well as Sin City Opera.

While the Holiday Cactus Lighting event is free and open to guests of all ages, tickets are required for admission. Starting Nov. 2, a limited number of tickets will be available at the Ethel M Chocolates factory in Henderson. A family four-pack of tickets will be offered in exchange for non-perishable food items to be donated to Three Square Food Bank, or a toy donation for HELP of Southern Nevada.

This annual Southern Nevada tradition is expected to attract thousands of chocolate lovers eager to usher in the season. In addition to the awe-inspiring lighting, the evening will feature holiday festivities including photos with Santa, chocolate samples, face painters, balloon artists, raffles and more. Families are welcome to take their own Santa photos for free, but a professional photographer will also be on hand taking and selling images for $10 each.

The Ethel M Holiday Cactus Garden will be open every evening through Jan. 1 and is free to the public (no pets please). The garden will glow nightly from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Additionally, visitors can peek into the factory where Ethel M Chocolates are crafted using time-honored methods and only the finest, fresh ingredients.
