There was a 16-foot Christmas tree, holiday treats and even snow! The Driskill Hotel hosted their 125th Anniversary Celebration with their annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Yes, you read that right – 125 years.
Families gathered ‘round for the 100,000 lights to illuminate the hotel lobby as they sipped on warm cider and egg nog. Executive Pastry Chef Tony Sansalone crafted a deliciously exquisite cake of stacked gifts and nutcrackers that was as a coveted family photo op as the tree.
The party continued into the night with the musical styling of Dale Watson, Tje Austin, Erin Ivey and more.
If you missed the holiday-filled evening, don’t worry – this was day one in the Twelve Days of Driskill. Evenings filled with movies, caroling and even a Pawliday Party are to come.
