Many holiday events have been canceled thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Vegas Festival of Lights announced that they plan to hold their festivities.

"The holidays are back in Nevada!" the release from the Las Vegas Festival of Lights said. "Starting November 24 – January 9, Vegas Festival of Lights will illuminate a giant section of Craig Ranch Park, With the official park lighting and fireworks spectacular on November 27."

According to the release, the festival will showcase millions of lights synchronized to music. Guests will also be able to pay for rides, games, and food.

There also will be photos with Santa, though COVID-19 restrictions mean it will look a bit different than usual.

"You and your loved ones will have a set time to interact with Santa. You will be able to write your letters and hand-deliver them to the big man," the release said. "Although no lap sitting or physical contact will be permitted, you still can get your photo with him. Santa will be set up in his office where you will be seated just in front of him (6ft away of course). This way your annual family Santa photos can still happen!"

Admission to the Festival of Lights will cost $15 per guest. Santa photos cost $14 each.
