For some holiday cheer, a cup of hot chocolate and maybe even a little snow, mark your calendar for 4 to 8 p.m. Dec. 7 for Hometown Holidays at Providence. The free event celebrates Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa with family-friendly entertainment, activities and helping others in need.
Hometown Holidays at Providence takes place at Knickerbocker Park inside the master-planned community in northwest Las Vegas. The park is at 10695 Dorrell Lane, north of the Las Vegas Beltway and Hualapai Way exit.
“The holiday season is a wonderful time for family and friends to create lasting memories, and our first communitywide Hometown Holidays event is an ideal place for that,” said Brandon Exline, Capital Consultants Management Corp.’s community manager for the Providence Master Homeowners Association. “It’s also a great opportunity for us to bring our residents together and share our beautiful community with first-time Providence visitors.”
Festivities include arts and crafts, snowball fast-pitch, cookie decorating, free hot chocolate, signing cards for the military, carolers, a food drive, a DJ and more. Sunny 106.5 FM also will be onsite providing music, contests and giveaways; and food and other drinks can be purchased from the Curbside Café, Chi Town Hustler and Sausage Fest food trucks.
Santa Claus, the Grinch of Dr. Seuss fame and P.D., the 7-foot-tall caramel-colored “Providence Dog” mascot, will be available for pictures. Additionally, a holiday picture package opportunity with Santa includes a complimentary Hometown Holidays at Providence frame.
At the cookie-decorating station, cookies can be purchased for $1 each or are free with three canned goods or nonperishable food items for families in need during the holidays. Donated items and proceeds will benefit Three Square, a food bank that helps more than 600 programs in Southern Nevada in times of crisis and hunger.
Attendees also can send messages of holiday cheer to men and women in the military through the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” initiative, sponsored by the American Red Cross. This program reaches out to troops who are recovering in military hospitals and service members stationed around the world, as well as veterans and their families.
Lighted park decorations, along with a 10-foot-tall holiday house designed and sponsored by Stage House, a Las Vegas-based design company, and other Winter Wonderland decorations will be displayed until Jan. 2.
Hometown Holidays at Providence is sponsored by the master-planned community, the Providence Master Homeowner’s Association and Stage House. For information, call 702-216-2020 or visit www.providencelv.com.
