Las Vegas Holiday Events

Things get crazier than usual around here, especially during special events like boxing matches, the National Finals Rodeo, or certain extra-happy holidays involving fireworks and midnight countdowns.

Here's a guide.

Note that the Las Vegas will be busier than normal on these dates, so advance planning might be required in order to secure accommodations and event tickets. If a large convention is in town, accommodation prices may also be higher.
