Locals Only: Make room for pasta, lots of it

Truckloads of pasta, carnival rides and fireworks?

It’s either the 35th Annual San Gennaro Feast or a Friday at Artie Lange’s house.

In this case, it’s the 35th Annual San Gennaro Feast.

Although the event kicked off Wednesday, there are still four days left to enjoy the more than 70 food booths, 80 rides, midway games, a petting zoo and live music. In addition to the pasta, you can gorge yourself on pizza, calzones, baked clams, fried calamari, peppers and onions, and more. Free entertainment from the likes of the Frankie Moreno Band, Zowie Bowie, Yellow Brick Road and The Fab kicks off at 5 p.m. daily. Fireworks are scheduled for 9 p.m. Sunday.

The San Gennaro Feast runs 5-11 p.m. Thursday, 5 p.m.-midnight Friday, noon-midnight Saturday and noon-11 p.m. Sunday at 4245 Grand Canyon Drive.

Admission is $9, $8 for seniors and members of the military, and children 54 inches or shorter are admitted free. All-day ride passes are $25 Thursday and $30 Friday through Sunday. For more information, visit sangennarofeast.com.

High school musical

Gotta sing, gotta dance! At 7 p.m. Monday, that is, as contenders for the Nevada High School Music Theater Award take the stage at The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall, 361 Symphony Park Ave., to perform selections from their school productions — and hope the judges choose them to represent the Silver State at the National High School Musical Theater Awards in New York City. For tickets ($10), call 702-749-2000 or visit thesmithcenter.com.

Stamping out hunger

Here’s a way to help the hungry in Southern Nevada — and you don’t even have to mail it in. The National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is Saturday. To participate, all you have to do is leave a bag of nonperishable food by your mailbox, and your letter-carrier will pick it up for delivery to local food pantries. Last year, almost 400,000 pounds of food were collected by the drive and distributed to more than 20 local pantries.

Viva Toscha Comeaux

You can debate whether Cirque du Soleil’s “Viva Elvis” was a bad show or just a bad idea. No one will argue that it needed more segments like Toscha Comeaux’s gospel belting of “All Shook Up” and “Saved.” Comeaux has the stage to herself for a show at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Viva Las Vegas Event Center, 1201 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Tickets are $20 at the door.

Here’s hoping for Hill

You never know what you’re going to get at a Lauryn Hill show — oops, sorry, we mean a Ms. Lauryn Hill show. She’s capable of greatness when she’s into it, but the mercurial singer is a wild card who does what she pleases, even if it doesn’t always please those who’ve paid to see her. She performs at 9 p.m. Wednesday at Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq, 3545 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Tickets are $60 in advance, $70 day of show; call 702-862-2695.
