Go back to Chicago during the roaring 20’s

“Chicago”, by the incredible Bob Fosse, was the longest running American musical on Broadway and now will be performed at the Super Summer Theatre at Spring Mountain Ranch from July 31 to August 17.

The story takes place in the 1920’s and tells the story of chorus girl Roxie Hart.  She murdered her faithless lover and convinces her husband to take the rap for the crime.  He then finds out that he was duped and turns on Roxie.  Of course she is convicted of the crime and sent to death row where she meets Velma Kelly.  The two Merry Murderesses vie with each other for the spotlight and headlines until they decide to join forces.

Chicago is filled with songs and dance numbers that you will be tapping your feet to, however this play is rated PG-13 since it has some sexual content & dialogue, plus some violence.

Go see Chicago or one of the other shows playing this season – and bring the entire family.  Bring a blanket or chairs plus some food and refreshments and maybe a sweater (it’s much cooler there than down in the valley).  In my opinion, it is the best live-theatre venue in our valley.

The rest of the summer season will continue with 2 more great shows; ”Annie” and “Noises Off”.  All the information you need is at the web site, https://supersummertheatre.org/current-season/#.

Fourth of July Fireworks

Here is Las Vegas we have a tendency to do everything in a big way and Independence Day is no exception.  There are several places to go and watch professional fireworks put on by different hotels and some neighborhoods.  The following is a list of some of the places to go.

The Red Rock Resort will shoot off about 10 minutes of fireworks starting at 9 p.m. from its rooftop. Here’s the funny thing: there are no public viewing areas on property (although hotel guests may be able to catch a glimpse from the pool deck). Your best bet is heading next door to the Downtown Summerlin, where guests are welcome to bring chairs and blankets to The Lawn, a grassy gathering spot on the northwest end of the outdoor shopping plaza.  You can also view the fireworks from the shopping center parking lot across Charleston Boulevard.

Green Valley Ranch -Just like its sister property Red Rock Resort, Green Valley Ranch will also show a 10-minute firework show from its rooftop starting at 9 p.m. However, guests can view the display from the expansive backyard pool deck. Just purchase a pool pass wristband for $20 (or $10 for kids). You can also be able to get great views from The District — a neighboring outdoor dining and retail village.

Fourth of July Celebration at Skye Canyon Park – Bring the family to enjoy DJ music, live performances, food, beverages and a wonderful fireworks display. Free refreshments while supplies last. The first 500 people in the park will receive a free American flag. You can bring a blanket to enjoy the festivities.

Henderson Hosts Fourth of July Celebration – The City will host its annual Fourth of July celebration on of course Thursday, July 4. The family-friendly event at Heritage Park, 350 E. Racetrack Rd., will feature live music, activities for kids and lawn games, and will conclude with a 22-minute fireworks display at 9 p.m. Admission to the event and parking is free. Gates open at 4 p.m. A blanket is recommended.  Food and beverage vendors will be on site for the event.

M Resort Spa Casino lights up the sky with a festive firework display choreographed to music in honor of Independence Day Thursday, July 4 at 9 p.m. Guests can view the fireworks from the M Pool deck after enjoying a special Fourth of July holiday menu at Studio B Buffet and holiday-themed casino promotions throughout the resort.

Go to the Devine Café in the Springs Preserve for a July 4th Celebration – Bring the whole family to celebrate Independence Day at our extended July 4th Happy Hour! Live music by Frankie and the Infernos and a special menu are the perfect patriotic accompaniment to fireworks viewing from the Divine Cafe – one best views in the valley. Thursday, July 4, 4 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. No reservations required – first come, first served.

The only fireworks display downtown is at the Plaza Hotel– starting at: 5pm the resort is promising its biggest exhibit yet, with fireworks shooting off from multiple towers. Guests can hang out in the water during a free pool party with burgers (Impossible and otherwise) and party grub served by a food truck. There will also be a Coney Island-style hotdog eating contest and $3 Jell-O shots (or three for $5 — better deal!). If you happen to be hanging out on Fremont Street, you can also check out a free concert by the Eli Young Band from 9-10:30pm on the 3rd Street Stage.

On the Strip – Caesar’s Palace and Mandalay Bay will have fireworks.

Caesar’s Palace fireworks will start at: 9:15pm.  While several casinos join together for one massive fireworks show on New Year’s Eve, Caesars Palace does most of the heavy lifting on Independence Day. Take in the elaborate fireworks show from the Garden of the Gods pool deck. Aside from neighboring resorts, the best views will be from the Spanish Steps and other pedestrian areas near the front entrance of Caesars Palace.

Mandalay Bay starts at: 9pm- Celebrate America with the island sounds of Jamaica. Reggae-pop band Mystic Roots will take the stage at Mandalay Bay Beach, leading up to a fireworks show at 10:30pm. Ticket holders can swim in the wave pool, lounge on the sand, and booze it up holiday-style. Admission starts at $20.

Earlier in the day don’t forget to go to Summerlin for the 25th Annual Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade.  Bring the family and see fantastic floats, marching bands and crazy balloons floating above. The parade starts at 8:30 a.m. and is expected to be over at 11a.m.

I want to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July. And please be careful if you will be handling fireworks.

WOW – It’s the 25th Annual Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade – Thursday July 4th

It’s hard to believe that another year has flown by and that this year is the 25th annual Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade.  My family and I have a tradition we get up early on the 4th of July and find a perfect spot up front on the parade route to set up our little shade structure, then we go to get some breakfast nearby.   We always have a great time and besides watching a great parade we get to meet other families that are as excited as we are to see the pageantry float by.

The entire Las Vegas valley is invited to celebrate Independence Day at the 25th Annual Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade, Southern Nevada’s largest and most colorful Fourth of July parade. The parade starts at 8:30 a.m. and is expected to be over at 11a.m. The parade begins at the corner of Hillpointe Rd and Hills Center Dr in The Trails village of Summerlin. Participants travel south toward Village Center Circle, then west on Trailwood Drive. The parade ends near the corner of Trailwood Drive and Spring Gate Lane.

This year for the silver anniversary of the parade there will be over 70 entries including a float themed for the Las Vegas Golden Knights sponsored by City National Bank that started in the parade last year.  Plus all the traditional floats and giant balloons, bands, military heroes, musical groups and children themed figures of storybook and cartoon characters.

Over 40,000 people are expected to watch the festivities.  There are more than 2,500 people participating and over 500 volunteers from schools and other organizations.  The on lookers come from all parts of the Las Vegas area to watch this spectacular parade.  Don’t forget to bring water and wear sunscreen.

The feeling you get watching everyone taking great pride in our city is pure joy and how proud we all are to be in this incredible country. There is nothing quite like it. For parade details, just go to: http://summerlink.com/patriotic-parade

I want to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July. And please be careful if handling fireworks. The air is extra dry and you can easily start a fire, or get hurt. Maybe you prefer to let the professionals handle it and watch the fireworks at Red Rock Casino or at Green Valley Ranch Hotel?

Imagine Lady Gaga & Shakespeare creating a love child…

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Concert Fantastic is an impressive production for the whole family.  The LAB LV and Super Summer Theatre are proud to bring you Shakespeare’s beloved tale, told anew, with iconic song and dance; combining Shakespeare’s classic text with today’s favorite music!  This outlandish, kid-friendly stage show runs from June 26 through July 13.

If you’re not familiar, the basis of the story is the Duke of Athens is to wed the Amazon Queen, whom he has taken captive after battle.  But when the King and Queen of Fairies have fantastical fallout in the forest, as they journey to the wedding, two pairs of star-crossed lovers get tangled in a web of confusion and jealousy!  What could possibly go wrong that a dash of fairy magic can’t fix?!

Never been to the Spring Mountain Ranch, (just west of Las Vegas past Red Rock National Park) to see a show?  Go see one or all the shows that are playing this season – and bring the entire family.  Bring a blanket or chairs plus some food and refreshments and maybe a sweater (it’s much cooler there than down in the valley) In my opinion, it is the best live-theatre venue in our valley.

Water Watcher Cards and Water Safety

I am re-posting this blog as I feel this subject is a very important topic and we cannot be reminded to often to take all precautions when dealing with kids and swimming pools.  There are many swimming classes given in the Las Vegas Valley – let’s keep all children safe.

Its summer in Las Vegas and we all know what that means – hot weather and relaxing in the swimming pool to escape the heat and still be outdoors.  However water safety is a must do especially if you have children.

That is why I am giving out Water Watcher Cards to adults that agree to be responsible and supervise the kids in the water without distraction.  If there are several adults around the Water Watcher Card is passed to another responsible adult that will also supervise the kids and keep them safe in the water.

First of all when you have a backyard pool you should install fences around the pool.  The fence should surround all sides of the pool and be at least four feet tall.  The opening gate to the pool should be self-closing and self-latching gates.  The Health District in Las Vegas also advises putting an alarm on the gate.

It might be wise to take a class in what to do in an emergency – learn CPR and water rescue skills – this can help in saving a life.  If you have children you might want to enroll them in swimming classes.

This advice is not only for your backyard pool.  Be a Water Watcher when your family goes to a water park or community pool.  Keep your eyes on your children – there are usually life guards on duty however they cannot watch everyone all the time.

If you have toddlers in the home make sure all bathtubs are empty of water – did you know a baby can drown in an inch of water?  Also get into the habit of putting all toilet seats down so curious toddlers do not get into them.

Water safety also means dealing with monsoon rains and if you are taking out a boat on Lake Mead – those topics are for another blog.

Become a Water Watcher and contact me for a card, and take care of what is most precious in the world – children.

Friday Night Live – concert series in the Trails Park in Summerlin

The Summerlin Council presents the return of the fantastic “Friday Night Live” summer concert series.  You can bring your own food and drink and a blanket on Friday June 7, and head over to the Trails Park, 1910 Spring Gate Lane, Las Vegas Nevada 89134.  You will enjoy live musical experiences and performances that are guaranteed to get up on your feet and “Dance to the Music.”  And to top that off – – – it’s free!!!!!

The concert series gives you the opportunity to socialize with friends and neighbors in Summerlin and maybe even get to know other people from this incredible community. My family goes to at least one of these free concerts every summer! Be prepared for a wonderful night of fun as the bands play fun music that you know, and you can dance on the basketball court in front of the stage beneath the summer stars.

The popular live show kicks off with ’80s revival band “Loveshack”, which has been voted Best of Las Vegas in the Las Vegas Review-Journal readers poll several times.  The show starts at 7 p.m. however I suggest you get there a little earlier that that to find a place on the lawn for your blanket.

The second concert of the series happens on August 9 with “Yellow Brick Road” scheduled to perform and the third is September 6 with “Boogie Knights” on the schedule.

Originating in 1997 The Summerlin Council is the owner and operator of the Trails, Willows, Gardens and Vistas Community Centers, Willows Pool, Trails Pool, Vistas Pool, Summerlin Tennis Club and the community’s major parks and amenities.

Additionally the Council plans more than a dozen annual events, offers more than 150 community classes and youth camps, and prepares and distributes monthly and quarterly publications to the residents. According to Tom Warden, vice president of community and government relations for The Howard Hughes Corporation, “The Summerlin Council is the heart of the community and is responsible, in large part, for the quality of life for which the community is known.”
