AC Boardwalk becomes Winter Wonderland

ATLANTIC CITY -

Just in time for the holidays the Atlantic City Alliance unveiled its new "Winter Sweet" 3D light show on Boardwalk Hall.

With the push of a button recording artist Clay Aiken kicked off the show which was the grand finale of the Atlantic City Alliance's Winter Wonderland Celebration, a free event with plenty of holiday fun, from carolers to snow flurries.

"It's about finding all the fun things to do in Atlantic City, all the activities that are here and that spirit of hospitality which I think is sort of similar to the spirit of the holidays," said Liza Cartmell, President of the Atlantic City Alliance.

"Winter Sweet" was developed by Moment Factory from Montreal.  The show used a combination of light projectors and sounds to tell a 3D winter story and wow the audience.

"I think it was just amazing how they got it all to fit in the spots and it was beautiful," said Lynn Filiciello, who attended the show.

"I thought the show was outstanding. I think its something the city really stepping up and putting things in for people to come out and see," said Joe Lamaine, who also saw the show.

Guests could sip on hot chocolate while listening to Holiday Cheer carolers and taking in a performance by the Atlantic City Ballet.

While the holiday plans of many may have been changed by Hurricane Sandy, "Winter Sweet" provided some much needed holiday cheer for those affected.

"We're victims of the Hurricane Sandy storm and we're living in and out of living arrangements but this is our night off together so we like to spend this time together and I really enjoyed it," said "Winter Sweet" guest and Hurricane Sandy victim Juanita Walker.

"Winter Sweet" can be seen nightly from 6pm to 9pm on the facade of Boardwalk Hall.
