The holidays have arrived at the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens with a sea of more than 45,000 poinsettias, a giant White Fir tree, frolicking polar bears, Santa’s sleigh, reindeer and more.

New this year is a 13-foot tall, 12-foot wide walk-through snow globe surrounded by giant 14-foot tall toy soldiers and dancing water arches and a 1,600-pound chocolate house created by the Bellagio executive pastry team.

Eighteen thousand fresh carnations cover a family of polar bears who bear scarves from Coca-Cola. Bellagio has partnered with Coca-Cola to promote the World Wildlife Fund’s efforts to raise awareness and funds to protect places where polar bears and people can thrive in the Arctic.

Coca-Cola will match up to $1 million in donations made through www.ArcticHome.com through Feb. 15, 2014.

Crowning the holiday display is a 42-foot tall White Fir tree. It weighs 6,800 pounds and has 2,500 ornaments and 7,000 LED lights.

Besides the decorations, visitors to the Conservatory can enjoy musical performances from 5 to 6 p.m. nightly.
