My family’s favorite part of the show is always the Bellagio-style dancing water shows choreographed to holiday music and popular classics at the Esplanade Fountain. The kids stare big-eyed in amazement or they simply say, “Whoa! Look at that!”
The lights, the sounds, the action! It is truly a breath-taking experience that you won’t want to miss!
