Santa Claus takes a break during his busiest time of year and returns to the Lake Las Vegas residential, golf and resort community to cruise on the lake with children. Special hour-long Santa Cruises will sail around the master plan’s 320-acre lake on Saturdays after Thanksgiving and before Christmas. While on the La Contessa Yacht, children can play holiday-inspired games, enjoy holiday goodies and take photos with Santa.
The Santa Cruise will sail at 11 a.m. on Nov. 2 6 and Dec. 10 and at 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 3 and Dec. 17. Admission is $20 per person with boarding at the Lake Las Vegas Marina in MonteLago Village. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
