Christmas magic in the air at MGM Resorts’ Biloxi beachfront resort with a winter wonderland featuring glittering displays, live entertainment, shopping and Santa
One of the South’s most anticipated holiday displays returns this year with something for all ages. Beau Rivage celebrates the season in grand fashion each year from Thanksgiving to New Year’s with a variety of entertainment and special events including a spectacular holiday show, shopping event, and an exclusive brunch with Santa himself.
Beau Rivage captivates the imagination with nostalgic decor and timeless traditions, making it a must-experience holiday destination for the entire family. The resort is adorned with larger-than-life nutcrackers, colossal Christmas ornaments, hundreds of frost-covered trees, thousands of brilliant poinsettias, and Santa’s sleigh and reindeer soaring high above the atrium. A stunning 20-foot Christmas tree and classic winter scenes throughout the resort’s public spaces invoke the spirit of the season.
“Each year visitors marvel at our ever-changing holiday displays, décor and live entertainment,” said MGM Southeast President and COO Travis Lunn. “Christmas at Beau Rivage has become a Gulf Coast tradition and our team takes great pride in creating magical moments for guests.”
