NEWPORT, Ky., Nov. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its opening in 2001, Newport on the Levee has provided the backdrop for one of the region's most original and iconic annual holiday celebrations. This holiday season, Newport on the Levee is bringing to life the most unique holiday experience in the region. Beginning with a significantly larger Light Up the Levee event, on Saturday, November 23, Winter Wonder on the Levee will take over the Central Plaza and Gallery Building with a month-long extravaganza of one-of-a-kind holiday shops, entertainment, events, seasonal food and beverages and activities for every age.
"We're thrilled to be a part of the "new" Newport on the Levee, uniquely activated for our community, with hospitality and attractions you won't find anywhere else, starting with our holiday experience and we are going to keep it going strong into 2020," said Tim Perry, Partner and Chief Investment Officer of North American Properties.
Winter Wonder on the Levee will infuse every available space with a sense of holiday hospitality, centered around a customized Santa's House, which for the first time, is being brought indoors to the Gallery Building. A rotating schedule of activities will set the stage for the level of experience Newport on the Levee is committed to creating in the new year and beyond. Guests will be greeted with activities and events designed for every stage of life, starting with an official launch event the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
- Light Up the Levee - Saturday, November 23 – 5:30 PM – 10:00 PM –– the official kick-off to the holiday season, this 11th annual 50-foot tree lighting of 1.4 million lights would not be complete without Santa's grand helicopter arrival, musical performances, the first snowfall of the season from the Levee's rooftops, topped off by a brilliant firework display, children's activities, food trucks, and new for adults and families alike, an After Party with live music, food and drinks.
Ongoing activities Friday, November 29 – Tuesday, December 24
- Santa's House on the Levee – Mr. and Mrs. Claus will call this warmly inviting, larger-than-life chic cottage their home for the Holiday, welcoming children of all ages for photos, treats and a one-of-a-kind opportunity to share their wish list with a truly "all-knowing" Santa before the big day.
- The Village on the Levee – New this year, Newport on the Levee is opening its floorspaces and temporary storefronts to merchants, eateries and makers of customized, specialty foods, arts, gifts and unique crafts for holiday shopping and gift-giving.
A complete schedule of events, concerts, specialty classes, specials from Newport on the Levee restaurants and retailers and many more surprises will ensure that no one will be able to experience all Winter Wonder on the Levee has to offer in a single visit.
"We are thrilled to focus our resources on creating a community-driven destination," Perry said. "Starting by celebrating the magic of the holidays, set against the lights of the city and the glow of our tree and continuing into the excitement of a brand new year."
