Updated November 24, 2017 - 11:52 pm

Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived in style via helicopter for a tree-lighting ceremony Friday night at the The Magical Forest at Opportunity Village.

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and Congresswoman Dina Titus flipped a switch to illuminate millions of lights throughout the Magical Forest, kicking off its annual holiday run. Also on hand for the event were The Venetian Las Vegas’ doo-wop pop group, Human Nature, and Lorena Peril of Fantasy at the Luxor.

The family-friendly holiday attraction offers food and treats, nightly entertainment, the Forest Express passenger train, The Blizzard minicoaster, the Avalanche Slide, the Ethel M Candy Cabin, photo opportunities with Santa and more.

Located at 6300 W. Oakey Blvd., the Magical Forest opens at 5:30 every night through Dec. 31, with the exception of Dec. 25. General admission for adults is $12, $10 for children.

Proceeds from the Magical Forest help fund Opportunity Village, a nonprofit organization serving people in the community with significant intellectual disabilities.
