If you’re a Nevadan who makes a habit of hiking at Red Rock, or if you simply enjoy a walk in the park, don’t miss the third annual Get Outdoors Nevada Day (GetOutdoorsNevadaDay.org) on October 15. Hosted by the Outside Las Vegas Foundation, the free community event at Lorenzi Park will feature more than 70 exhibitors, live music, food vendors, kid-friendly activities, BMX and kayak demonstrations, a climbing wall and a rope bridge.
As part of the celebration of its 100th anniversary, the National Park Service is sponsoring the event and will honor volunteers who have given thousands of hours to preserving our outdoor spaces, which seems fitting at one of the oldest parks in the Valley.
“Nevadans have many things they can celebrate, and the outdoors is one of them,” says Mauricia Baca, executive director of the Outside Las Vegas Foundation. “Residents and visitors discover that it’s an untapped resource in Las Vegas. Walking trails, climbing and kayaking lead to a great quality of life.”
