Higbee Park - Will Ujek

CLEVELAND -- Are you in the holiday spirit?

The JACK Cleveland Casino is already celebrating the Christmas season with their 5th annual Holidays at the Higbee decorations.

The theme this year surrounds Jack Frost. Guests with a keen eye can spot 21 versions of the character hiding throughout.

All three gaming floors are decked out like holidays of the past when the building was home to Higbee’s Department Store.

There are more than 100 trees, 6,000 square feet of fake snow and more than 100,000 lights.

Other highlights include:

  • The original 22-foot Higbee’s tree towers over the street-level gaming floor adorned with photos from classic Cleveland.
  • 21 bells with tassels hanging above gaming tables and slot machines.
  • 8 custom-designed archways, each spanning 22 feet with 30,000 total twinkling lights.
  • Leg lamps made famous by the Cleveland-filmed A Christmas Story movie hang from the ceiling.
  • A Christmas Story slot machines.
  • Above the casino’s entrance sits a “Season’s Greetings” sign.

There are several outdoor window scenes, too, including a central display that features a twig tree with more than 28,000 crystals, snowflakes and lights.
