Lake Las Vegas celebrates the season

Lake Las Vegas is decking the halls for a monthlong series of holiday events throughout December. The lakeside community’s festive lineup includes the annual Holiday Golf Cart Parade, Ugly Sweater Contest and more.

“The holiday season at Lake Las Vegas is our favorite time of year. Almost every weekend in December offers opportunities to take part in our most beloved community traditions,” said Patrick Parker, president of Raintree, developers of Lake Las Vegas.

Proceeds from the holiday celebrations will benefit the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, a local nonprofit that helps those in need of food, shelter and addiction recovery. Residents and guests are invited to donate their gently used or new clothing items this month by placing them in the donation bins at Seasons Grocery &Deli in The Village, Reflection Bay Golf Club and the Lake Las Vegas Sports Club.
