Tree Lighting

Held annually the week after Thanksgiving, the festive celebration has become a popular way to kick off the holidays, providing a welcome opportunity for neighbors to gather in the spirit of the season as well as for Las Vegas residents to visit Southern Highlands. Hosted by the Southern Highlands Community Association, the annual event also benefits Operation Warm Heart, a private, nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to the local airmen and their families of the Nellis and Creech military community. While Operation Warm Heart helps military families year-round, during the holiday season, the organization also donates turkeys and toys to help bring holiday cheer to those in need.
