Las Vegas Holiday Events You Need To Put On Your Calendar


The turkey is cooked, the shopping is done and you are probably in limbo with putting your holiday decorations up or completely avoiding them. Las Vegas may not be the average winter wonderland but we do a pretty good job at making do with what we have. Anywhere from lighting up cacti to incorporating fake snow into our holiday parties; we let our creativity get the best of us. The holiday season has officially started, so let's get in the spirit with your one stop shop to Las Vegas holiday events!
