Universal City, Ca – Universal CityWalk’s month-long holiday party got off to a rockin’ start with the mini Kings of rock n’ roll, ”The Elves Presley” illuminating CityWalk’s first City Rockin’ Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Friday, November 28.
Bedecked in 100, 000 LED lights and animated to a stunning display of choreographed music, visuals, and a breathtaking snowfall CityWalk’s giant City Rockin’ Christmas tree lit up Cinema Plaza treating guests to an impressive high-tech performance brought to life for the first time by mini masters of ceremony, “The Elves Presley”. The event marked the beginning of a month-long seasonal gala featuring non-stop holiday entertainment.
The CityWalk holiday event immerses guests in 35-days of festivities enhanced with decorations, an eclectic program of holiday-themed performances including jubilant choirs, live bands performing remixed seasonal classics, festive street performers, and a plethora of photo opportunities with Santa all while the world’s largest mistletoe dangles overhead and a quintessential merry “kiss-mass.” The holiday celebration will culminate with Southern California’s largest free New Year’s party bringing twice the excitement with twin countdowns at end of CityWalk and featuring a colorful firework display, confetti blasts, and live music to ring in 2009.
