Please join us Saturday, December 4 at 5:30 p.m. for the Holiday Tree Lighting at L.A. LIVE and grand opening of the LA Kings Holiday Ice at L.A. LIVE. The evening, hosted by Billy Bush, will feature special performances by GRAMMY award-winning singer Seal, Willow Smith, Jessica Lowndes (90210), Greyson Chance and a special on-ice performance by 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek. The holiday festivities will air LIVE on KTLA during a special 1 hour broadcast. The Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony will also kick off Season of Giving - AEG's annual holiday charitable initiative being launched to provide fundraising and awareness opportunities for charities and non-profit organizations in the Los Angeles area. Throughout the month of December, a different charity or non-profit organization will be honored at the skating rink each night as part of AEG's Season of Giving initiative.
The centerpiece of Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE will be a 54 foot LED holiday tree with over 10,000 lights and designed by Brian Stonestreet, a Primetime Emmy Award winner for production design. The evening will also mark the season's first lighting of the festive holiday lights displayed along the streets throughout the L.A. LIVE district which is sure to sparkle during the holiday season with over 75,000 festive holiday lights along the streets that adorn 50 ten-foot angels along with over 265,000 snowfall LED lights covering 150 trees.
The LA Kings Holiday Ice presented by Coca Cola - the 70'x80' outdoor ice skating rink located within Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE - is nearly twice as big as last year's rink and is the perfect holiday outing! The rink will be open to the general public from November 27 - January 2, weekdays from 3 - 11 p.m. and on weekends from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. For more information, visit www.lalive.com/holidayice.
