1. WinterFest 2015
From Dec. 10 to Dec. 12, Henderson will be hosting the annual WinterFest celebration. This is a great event for families, as there is so much to do.

There is something for everyone of every age to do, and it is sure to put a cheery, holiday smile on your face.
2. Lake Mead Parade of Lights
To get into the holiday spirit, head on over to Lake Mead on Dec. 12 to see 50 boats that are covered in holiday lights and decorations. Illuminating the shore with twinkling lights, it is sure to be a sight that you will never forget. And unlike most parades, this one takes place on the lake, where you can view it all from the shore. Get your family and friends together to appreciate the decorated boats in preparation of the holiday season.
3. Winter in Venice at the Venetian
For a heavy dose of holiday cheer, the Venetian really puts on a show. With a Christmas tree that is 65 feet tall and completely lit with color-changing orbs, you can’t help but stare and marvel at this beauty. Your favorite holiday characters can be seen roaming around the area, as well as entertainment performed onstage. If you’re staying in Henderson, be sure to make a day trip up to the Venetian for this outstanding holiday experience.
4. Ice Skating at the Cosmopolitan
Ice skating at the Cosmopolitan isn’t necessarily an event, but more of a tradition. You and your family can enjoy skating on this gorgeous ice rink that is located just outside of Henderson. Different nights of the week have different themes. For example, Mondays are “Date Skate” days, where beloved holiday movies are played on a large display. Grab a loved one, drink some hot chocolate, skate around and make a night of it.
5. New Year’s Eve Old Vegas Party
Of course, if you are staying at the Railroad Pass be sure to stay through the holidays to celebrate the New Year. On New Year’s Eve, Prestige and Elite Members of the casino can join in on the fun.
