Holiday lights are on at The Gateway (SL Mag)

Monday, 19 November 2012 16:00

The Gateway officially turned on the lights on Saturday night.

Joining Temple Square in lighting up SLC with holiday cheer, The Gateway unveiled their biggest and most expensive holiday light display yet, including a 50-foot-tall Douglas Fir, submitted by Dan and Linda Woodhead, at the Olympic Legacy Plaza.

Lights on the tree are also part of a choreographed and animated holiday light show, along with others in the plaza. See if for yourself each evening hourly from 5 to 8 p.m. during the holiday season.

To kick off Saturday's Light Up the Night event, The Gateway hosted One Voice Children's Choir and Kurt Bestor for exclusive performances. After the music and the tree lighting, Santa Claus came to town via the mall's Starlight Mini Express Train rolling down Rio Grande Street. The event was hosted by KSL radio's Doug Wright and KSL-TV anchor Nadine Wimmer.

If you missed Bestor at the tree lighting, A Kurt Bestor Christmas will be held at Abravanel Hall Dec. 13–15.

Salt Lake magazine was there for the whole event, visit for some amazing photos of the event.
