The Venetian and The Palazzo continue the holiday spirit as season 13 winner of “Dancing with the Stars” Karina Smirnoff made a stop at the resorts’ first-ever Winter in Venice. Karina Smirnoff graced the Winter in Venice white carpet, took festive photos and mingled with fans amidst the strolling holiday characters and ice skating rink.

The majestic ice skating rink is just one of the many ways guests can experience Winter in Venice at The Venetian and The Palazzo this holiday season, taking place now through Jan. 8. Winter in Venice is the first true celebration of the winter season on the Las Vegas Strip, with 49 days of holiday festivities throughout both resorts, including strolling carolers, candy cane stilt walkers, puppets, jugglers, magicians, the Nightly Spectacular holiday show and an awe-inspiring 65-foot LED holiday tree.
