Foxwoods rang in the holiday season last month, kicking things off with The Brian Setzer Orchestra's "Christmas Rocks!" extravaganza at the Grand Theater. In a battle of Thanksgiving-sized appetites, Joey Chestnut was dethroned by Miki Sudo at the 2nd Annual Foxwoods World Turkey-Eating Championship. The property also launched its 3rd Annual "Stuff the Bus" holiday giving campaign, collecting toys, blankets, pajamas, jackets and diapers to be donated to local families in need. On the casino floor, Christmas came early for Penny Fuller of Enfield, Connecticut, who took home over $484,000 as Foxwoods' Large Wide Area Progressive Jackpot Winner.
Festivities continue in December, as Criss Angel and The SUPERNATURALISTS return to Foxwoods with a full arsenal of mind-blowing illusions. A trio of America's hottest comedians – Lisa Lampanelli, Mike Epps and Artie Lange – will bring their respective acts to the Grand Theater. To bring 2015 to a rocking close, Grammy-Award winning superstars Imagine Dragons will headline Foxwoods' inimitable New Year's Eve festivities.
Now open for the winter, Foxwoods' Rink & Winter Patio is the perfect place to spend family time this holiday season. Beginning on December 28, you can bring your little ones to Foxwoods for Kid's Week where they can enjoy free movies in the Grand Theater as well as face painting, kid's bingo and various arts and crafts.

About the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation
The Mashantucket Pequots are a native Algonquin people in southeastern Connecticut who endured centuries of conflict and survive today on the oldest continuously occupied reservation in the U.S., dating to its establishment in 1666. As the first native people within the borders of the continental United States to suffer attempted genocidal massacre by Puritan Colonists in 1637, the Pequots and their repatriation is an unprecedented story of restoration exhibited in detail at the Tribe's world-class Museum and Research Center (www.pequotmuseum.org).
