Get ready for the outdoor Festival of the Arts in Downtown Summerlin and its Free!!  The weekend event will be held October 13 and 14 between the hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the lawn at Downtown Summerlin.

The festival is not just an art festival; it also features music, entertainment and food.  If you have not been, the area is very walkable and the weather should be incredible- as you know October is one of the best months in the Las Vegas valley.

At this point (and I’m sure more will be added) there will be 100 creative fine artists displaying artwork for sale.  There will be an area for children’s activities as well as an area for entertainment and music.  And of course the restaurants of Downtown Summerlin will be offering delicious food to keep you fueled for all the activities.

There will be products for sale like artisan food products, basketry, batik, clay and ceramics, drawings, glass, gourds, jewelry, leather crafts, metal, photography, printmaking, sculpture and much more in the Consumer & Carnivals, Gifts & Handicrafts industries.

I’m sure more information will be available as we get closer to the weekend of the festival so I will likely be following up this blog with another to keep you apprised.

Fox Hill Park is colorful, vibrant and is designed to keep kids moving and thinking, with the structures fueling their imagination.  Plus the park looks and feels a bit like Disneyland, only better because it’s located here. “Fox Hill Park encourages physical activity which is good for both mind and body.  Kids today need more spaces and places to run, jump, climb, roll, skip and imagine, and Fox Hill Park is just the ticket.  Its super-charged fun packaged into a wonderful outdoor park that will be enjoyed equally by kids and adults” stated Julie Cleaver vice president of planning and design for Summerlin.

The park’s design incorporates the area’s elevated and sloping topography with planted turf on a select hillside that screams, ‘hey kids, roll down me!’ Fox Hill Park is the perfect amenity for the village’s many families who call it home as well as the rest of the families in the Summerlin area.

Summerlin offers over 250 parks of all sizes that contribute to its hallmark outdoor lifestyle.  All equipment at Fox Hill Park was carefully selected and placed and has been certified by ASTM, a global organization that establishes standards of performance in a variety of disciplines, industries and products, including playground equipment.   According to Cleaver, ensuring the safety and quality of the park’s many structures was paramount.  “While fun was our goal with Fox Hill Park, safety is always the top priority.”

Summerlin Scholarship Program to help High School Graduates

The master-plan community of Summerlin created The Summerlin Children’s Forum, a non-profit organization in 1997.  This program aids Summerlin high school seniors that are residents of Summerlin with college scholarships.

This year three scholarships were awarded to the following recipients: Caitlyn Somers, a Faith Lutheran grad heading to UCLA to study English, Lauren Epstein from Palo Verde High School and going to Arizona State University to study biomedical engineering and Zachary Marks from West Career and Technical Academy heading to University of Utah to study political science and international studies.

To date the Summerlin’s Children Forum has funded just under $640,000 in scholarships, enrichment grants and special educational programs since its inception in 1997.

Tom Warden, senior vice president of community and government relations for Summerlin, stated “These students are representative of the very best in their respective schools and in their community.  The scholarships are awarded to those who have achieved academically, while giving back to the community and school through a commitment to service and extracurricular activities.

Summerlin is one the most awarded master-planned communities in the United States and offers many newly built homes in almost 35 neighborhoods.  There are also many existing homes listed for sale throughout the entire community at prices from the $200,000s to over $1 million.

Summerlin attracting more Commercial Development

The office market in the Las Vegas Valley has been marching forward on the path to recovery after the Great Recession. The master-plan community of Summerlin, known for its award winning home development and Downtown Summerlin, is expanding the development of office space buildings due to a great demand.

The Howard Hughes Corp. expects to complete the six-story Class A office building in Downtown Summerlin this fall.  They already have many spaces preleased according to Summerlin president Kevin Orrock.  This is the second office building in the open air mall with many types of tenants like attorney offices, brokers and gaming technology companies.

Orrock stated “I think it gets down to what we’ve done here in Summerlin.  We’re providing an urban core.  We’re providing a place where people want to live, work and play- plus the sports venues that are here or will be here.”

A couple of miles away from Downtown Summerlin, the Howard Hughes Corp is almost finished with another office development for Aristocrat Technologies, an Australian slot machine maker.

The commercial submarket in Summerlin has seen less vacancy averages than other commercial markets in Las Vegas.  A senior director at Cushman & Wakefield said that Summerlin is the most desirable location for commercial consumers in the valley.  He also said that many employers are considering millennials predominantly when making decisions on the location of their offices.

The Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade – Only 1 Week Away

It’s really hard to believe that July 4th is only one week away – this year has just flown by. My family and I love the Summerlin Patriotic Parade so much. It has become a tradition for us to 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. In fact, a few times Nicole & Emma have gotten up even earlier to run the Firecracker 5K run (this year it is the evening before at 7:00 pm for some reason). I don’t run ☺

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.

This year is very special as the Summerlin parade celebrates its 20th year. There are 70 bands, balloons and floats – the parade gets better every year with additions to the festivities. This year there will be a float for the Las Vegas Golden Knights to show how beloved they are in the community.

The parade travels along flag-lined streets from Hillpointe Road and Hills Center, then south on Hills Center Drive concluding on Trailwood Drive at the entrance of the Trails Village Shopping Center. Arrive early to get a prime viewing area along the route.

You get to see neighbors wrangling the big balloons and marching bands keeping in time. Some of the floats are aimed at young children with their favorite stories as the theme of these floats.

The feeling you get watching everyone taking great pride in our country and 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 just want to let the professionals handle it and watch the fireworks at Red Rock Casino or at Green Valley Ranch Hotel?
