LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a holiday event so spectacular it was featured on the Travel Channel's "Christmas Crazy" special: Christmas at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky!  This year, there's a new Peppermint Express Kiddie Train Ride through the Candy Cane Forest.  Inside, children will be greeted by Mr. Sugar Pine, the talking tree.  They'll also watch as nearly 100 new animated animals work to get ready for a holiday party in the forest.

Each year, the KaLightoscope Attraction is a favorite of guests.  It's the only one of its kind in the world, and will include even more themed areas.  These larger-than-life lighted creations will be more interactive in 2012.

One sure fire way to get in the holiday spirit is to enjoy the Colors of the Season Holiday Dinner Show.  It's the essence of the holidays all rolled together into one, enchanting experience.  This custom dinner show features a holiday story, live music, a festive dinner, classical Christmas Songs, and dancing.  Performances begin November 23 and run through December 15, 2012.

Rated a Top 100 Event for 2012 and 2013 by the American Bus Association, the experience starts the moment you step inside the Galt House Hotel.  In fact, Bing Travel named Galt House Hotel One of the Twelve "Most Decked Out Holiday Hotels" in 2011.  From trees to lights and everything in between, guests are wowed by the grandeur.  There's even a life-sized gingerbread house!

Christmas at the Galt House Hotel runs from November 17, 2012 to January 2, 2013.  Tickets are a great value with a FREE Child's Ticket per purchase of an $18.99 Adult KaLightoscope Christmas Ticket.  Individual and group packages are available.  The event helps raise money for the charity Blessings in a Backpack, a unique program designed to feed elementary school children on weekends through the school year.
