Sponsors will host interactive children’s activities at more than 30 different booths. Some of this year’s kid-friendly sponsors include Summerlin, Borders, Las Vegas School of Dance and Music and Lied’s Children’s Discovery Museum.
According to Kevin Orrock, executive vice president of master-planned communities for The Howard Hughes Corp., developer of Summerlin, Summerlin Kids’ Mix is a great addition to this year’s event lineup given the large number of families who live in the community.
“Summerlin is a well-established family-oriented community,” he said. “The community has successfully attracted a variety of homebuyers throughout its 20-plus year history, but families continuously represent the largest homebuyer demographic. Families appreciate and frequent the parks, schools, medical and cultural facilities, houses of worship and other community amenities unique to Summerlin. So it’s only appropriate we have events that cater to families as well.”
To get to Summerlin Centre Community Park from Summerlin Parkway, exit southbound on Town Center Drive. The park is located between West Charleston Boulevard and West Sahara Avenue on the east side of the street.
This year’s event is sponsored and coordinated by Summerlin in partnership with CBS Radio Las Vegas.
