(Macao, Nov. 16, 2018) – The festive season officially kicked off yesterday at Sands Resorts Macao with The Venetian Macao and The Parisian Macao transformed into enchanting winter wonderlands, complete with spectacular Christmas trees, a genuine ice skating rink, fun markets, superb entertainment and delicious food and drink treats. Guests and visitors alike can enjoy the celebrations right through until Jan. 6, 2019.

The highlight of the launch event was the official unveiling of the stunning 50-foot inverted Christmas tree which hangs from the ceiling in the lobby rotunda of The Parisian Macao by Dr. Wilfred Wong, President of Sands China Ltd., and Mr. Cheng Wai Tong, Deputy Director of Macao Government Tourism Office, which is supporting the Winter Extravaganza programme.
