Museum Supporters Throw Las Vegas Holiday Party
Las Vegas visits Ventura on Saturday, December 8 when the Museum of Ventura County’s Next Generation presents Vegas In Ventura: A Holiday Party from 8:00 p.m. to midnight at the museum. Partygoers can dance to the music of Mini Elvis DJ Mighty Mike, visit the casino tables, mashed potato buffet and no-host bar, smile for the photo booth, and cash in their chips for an opportunity drawing for a three-day, two-night stay in Laughlin, Nevada. The event is presented by Next Generation, museum goers who enjoy parties, art, history and film, and who wish to encourage membership and participation in the Museum of Ventura County. Museum galleries are open that night until 9:00 p.m.
Tickets are $35 for the general public, $25 for museum members, and $50 at the door.
