The master-planned communities of Mountain’s Edge and Providence are preparing for events scheduled to be held at each community. The spring event season kicks off at Mountain’s Edge with the third annual Easter Extravaganza in April, and the Providence event season begins with gardening classes for residents in March.
"Our spring event schedule has become a much-anticipated source of fun for residents of Mountain’s Edge and Providence that offer a great amount of activities that range from celebrating the Easter holiday to learning how to tend to your outdoor yards and gardens during the season change," said Deonna Stocker, manager of the Home Search Café at Mountain’s Edge and Providence’s information center.
Providence, a 1,200-acre master-planned community located at Interstate 215, the Las Vegas Beltway, and Hualapai Road, will start its spring events schedule with a day of gardening classes for residents March 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. The classes will teach residents techniques on how to maintain and enhance their yards during the season change. These classes also encourage residents to plant drought-tolerant plants and install yards that have environmentally friendly designs.
Formerly Mark Twain Day, the community’s new Once Upon A Time event features literary-inspired festivities including story telling from many classic literary novels complete with audience participation, as well as musical performances from the Centennial High School Jazz Band. The event will be held April 17, from 11 a.m. to noon at the Providence Promenade.
Additional events scheduled to be held at the Promenade include a Community Chalk Off May 1, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.; Dog Days of Summer May 15, from 10:00 a.m. to noon and a community yard sale that runs from 7 a.m. to noon May 22.
Residents of Mountain’s Edge, a 3,500-acre master-planned community located on Buffalo Drive and Blue Diamond Road will celebrate the beginning of its spring event series with the Third Annual Easter Eggstravaganza April 3. This event is held at Exploration Park and includes a pancake breakfast, children’s crafts, games and prizes and the opportunity to have pictures taken with Mr. and Mrs. Bunny. The highlight of the day is the Easter egg hunt for children of all ages, with more than 10,000 hidden eggs. More than 3,000 residents attended last year’s event.
Mountain’s Edge will host one of its spring events May 8 when the community celebrates its fourth annual Country in the Park festival. The event features performances by local country bands, food vendors, pony rides, relay races, rock climbing, rodeo roping, mining for gems, mechanical bull riding, face painting and a petting zoo. Food vendors will offer authentic country western food and refreshments throughout the day.
"The combination of music, games and a day spent with family and friends in Exploration Park has helped Country in the Park become one of the well-participated events of the year at Mountain’s Edge," Stocker said.
"Every year this event gets bigger and bigger and the excitement is already building with residents asking about the details of the community’s largest event."
In the spirit of helping out others in need in the community, the homeowners association of Mountain’s Edge’s will host a day in the park where residents can bring items to donate for Goodwill. The event will be held April 10 at Exploration Park.
