Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino is ready to celebrate the start of the holiday season in a big way – and with plenty of star power.
The resort will host its annual holiday tree-lighting celebration on Thursday, Dec. 2, starting at 5 p.m. on the casino side of the resort. Santa Claus will be on the scene, and he will have plenty of special helpers, including Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, Sabretooth, Billy Buffalo and Rex (Buffalo Bandits’ mascot). They will all be there to greet those in attendance, share in the holiday spirit and help officials from Seneca Niagara and Seneca Gaming Corp. light the giant tree standing outside the Fourth Street entrance, above Seneca Square.
To cap off the special night, Western New York’s own Cami Clune, a finalist on “The Voice,” will perform a few songs after the tree is illuminated. Cami Clune & Vitamin D3 are in town for a special two-night performance of their “Holiday & Hits” show inside The Bear’s Den Showroom at Seneca Niagara on Dec. 2-3.
“The holidays are all about timeless traditions and a spirit of togetherness,” Seneca Gaming Corp. President and CEO Kevin Nephew said. “We’re excited to continue the tradition of our tree-lighting to help bring light to this holiday season and to truly make this the most magical time of the year.”
The public is invited to join in the fun and enjoy cookies and hot cocoa, courtesy of Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. The event will begin at 5 p.m., with the tree lighting occurring at approximately 6 p.m. Face masks will be required for all attendees.
The tree lighting will also be streamed live on the resort’s Facebook page. For more information, visit SenecaNiagaraCasino.com.
