So, you live in Las Vegas and you can't get into the holiday spirit because you miss the snow. Well, now you can go play in the snow at the Henderson Winterfest Celebration. It will be a manufactured winter wonderland at the Henderson Events Plaza 200 S. Water St.
There will be winter activities, live entertainment and folk art booths. The events will run from December 6 -9. The Henderson Civic Orchestra will be giving a free performance on December 6 at 7PM.
On December 7 at 6pm, there will be the official tree lighting and an award ceremony for the Holiday Home Decorations contest and Canstruction. This is a competition where local architects build structures out of canned goods. After the season is over, the canned goods get donated to local food banks.
On December 8 and 9 there will be ice skating, a petting zoo, carolers, a snow play area and so much more. Saturday at 10AM there will be a children's parade, with the U.S. Marines as the grand marshalls. Both days, there will be a performance of "A Christmas Carol".
