Foxwoods Lights Tree Full of 100,000 Lights

Foxwoods Resort Casino is getting into the holiday spirit.

The casino lit their 30 foot tree, full of a hundred thousand twinkling lights Saturday. 

"If you look all around us, there are lights everywhere. I can't even calculate it, but let's just say, in round numbers, a million lights," said Felix Rappaport, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino.

The celebration had performances by world champion skater Kimmie Meissner, singer-songwriter Debbie Gibson, and carolers, along with hot chocolate and ice skating.

"It's amazing," said 10-year-old Kitra Wilding, of Groton, about the holiday display. "I love it here. All the lights around the trees, around the house!"

Foxwoods staff said the skating rink will be open until March. They're calling the night a kickoff to the holiday season.
