Christmas in Las Vegas is a magical time with visitors from Pahrump to Mesquite stopping in to get a taste of the holiday spirit. While Las Vegas might have a reputation for being a place for grown-ups to play, there are plenty of family attractions to enjoy this holiday season with these being just a few of our top picks:

Upcoming Holiday Events in the Las Vegas Area

Cactus Garden Lighting

Imagine half a million dazzling Christmas lights covering three acres of cactuses. Thanks to Ethel M. Chocolates Factory, you don’t have to. Drop by with a food donation November 6 – January 1 and take in the display free of charge.

Mystic Falls Winter Wonderland

The Mystic Falls Indoor Park transforms into something out of a storybook on November 21, with holiday songs, lights, ‘snow,’ and busy elves making toys for Santa’s workshop. Catch them before they head back to the North Pole on January 1, 2019.

Henderson Winterfest

On December 7 & 8, the city of Henderson, NV embraces the yuletide spirit with a spectacular parade and tree lighting ceremony, followed by a host of family-friendly activities suitable for children of all ages.

Scuba Santa

Drop by the Silverton Hotel and Casino Saturdays and Sundays in December and see Santa diving in the aquarium with the sharks and stingrays. You can catch the big guy from 12:00 PM – 1:15 PM and 2:15 PM – 3:30 PM and even let the kids talk to him thanks to his special underwater mic!

Ice Rink at the Cosmopolitan

Enjoy a little traditional winter ice skating in the desert this season. The Cosmopolitan transforms their Boulevard pool into a 4,200 square foot ice rink for everyone to enjoy from November 21 – January 6 with light ‘snow’ showers happening at select times for an authentic wintery experience.
