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?

Don’t buy Summerlin garage sale signs – borrow mine (no charge) ((really))

Did you know the master-planned community of Summerlin requires specific signs for garage sales?  To some it seems silly, I know, but they look nicer than a lot of the homemade ones you see around the Las Vegas valley, and we like our community to look nice, so they have a rule (find the rule here), and I’m really not sad about it.

Did you know that the signs cost $6 each? If you want to have a garage sale and buy just 5 signs, there’s $30 gone before you get started, right? And if you buy 10… ugh! Well, I have a lot of them (more than 20).  The only thing I ask is that you return them all, in reasonably the same condition you borrowed them in.

You know, the more signs you have out around the area the more visible you will be and attract more people to your garage sale.  Whether you have a few, and want to use more, or don’t have any at all, you can borrow mine anytime (unless, of course, someone else has reserved them for the same day).  I’ll even drop them off to you, and when you’re finished you just return them to me!

What’s the catch you ask?  There’s no catch!  I promise!  Let’s be honest, they just sit in my garage collecting dust most of the time, anyway, and they might as well get put to good use!  Sure, I hope you’ll remember me someday when you are considering buying or selling real estate, but I promise not to start emailing you or calling you, just because you borrowed my signs. I’m gonna loan you the signs and that’s it. Deal? Just call my office at the number below to reserve them!

NEWSIES……Summerlin Library…..April 2-27 2019

Read all about it!   NEWSIES the play that was adapted for the stage from the popu­lar Disney film. Based on the 1899 true story of a courageous group of scrappy newsboys who become unlikely heroes when they rally forces to fight an unscrupulous newspaper tycoon, NEWSIES features a book by Harvey Fierstein, lyrics by Jack Feldman, and music by legendary composer Alan Menken. With its exciting score, fun choreography, and defy-all-odds inspirational story, Disney’s NEWSIES will have you cheering — and The Summerlin Library is the place to see it.

The play takes place in turn-of-the century New York City – Newsies is the boisterous story of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged newsies. When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!

Signature Productions began in 1989 as a nonprofit community theatre company by Dr. Karl M. Larsen a local Optometrist, and attorney Victor J. Austin. Originally, the company moved into a 3500 sq. ft. storefront unit at the corner of Charleston and Decatur where they built a small 200 seat theatre. Currently, they are housed in the Summerlin Library and Performing Arts Center, where they rent the space for each production.

The goal of Signature Productions is to provide a venue for young performers, designers and technicians to grow and develop their natural abilities while veteran performers, designers and technicians teach and inspire! The company has 2-3 major productions per year, usually musicals, which require approximately 4 months per production. The auditions have drawn as many as 350 aspiring artists to audition.

The Summerlin Library Theatre has 284 seats and every seat has a great view of the stage.  This is a great place to see a show.  Tickets cost $30, and offers a senior (60 and over) discount as well as student discount of $28 per ticket and children tickets are $20.
