It is a great time for parents in Las Vegas (and those visiting) during the month of February. There are tons of free, fun and educational event on and off the famous Las Vegas Strip. For the weekend of February 9th and 10th check out the following events.
Tivoli Village Complimentary Face Painting and MORE! This event goes from 9am until 1pm on Saturday, February 9th. Tivoli Village is located on the west-side of Las Vegas. The address is 440 S Rampart Boulevard Las Vegas, NV 89145. The best part of this event, besides being free, is that every member of the family will love it. The kids get free face painting and to watch jugglers perform. The parents can enjoy upscale shopping in a relaxed environment. Plus, there is complimentary valet parking!
On the same Saturday (02/09/13) there is another choice for a fun event and it is also on the west side! A farm near Gilcrease Orchard is giving away pony rides for a small fee. The kids can collect farm fresh eggs, too. The eggs do cost money but it is a great learning experience for children, especially the younger ones. The address is 7222 Grand Teton Drive.
On Sunday, February 10th, children have a unique opportunity. From 11:30am until 6pm, the Silverton Casino Hotel’s aquarium is hosting the ‘Meet the Mermaids’ event. The event is free and kids can read the biography of each mermaid while peering at them through the 4,000 tropical fish filled aquarium.
Also on the 10th is the Blue Grass Brunch at BarBistro. This event takes place on the artsy restaurant’s patio from 11am until 3pm. The address is 107 East Charleston Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada 89104.
The Spring’s Preserve is located within fifteen minutes of the BarBistro. On the 10th, families can rent bikes (helmets included) from the Preserve and ride two miles worth of trails. The cost is $8 per hour, per person. The scenery is well-worth the price and the weather in Las Vegas right now is perfect for this activity. Also, on this date the Spring’s Preserve’s “Wings over the Springs” show runs live. Kids can watch, sometimes even interact with hawk eagles, falcons, and owls!
Lastly, and if you have a little extra cash, check out Celine Dion’s show at Caesar’s Palace. The show is amazing and more than family-friendly. The show starts at 730pm on Saturday night (2/09/13) but the tickets start at $160 per person.
As you can tell, Las Vegas has plenty to offer families on the weekend of February 9th and 10th. Regardless if you are taking the family out on a shoestring budget or are planning to splurge, there is no shortage of entertaining and informative activities for the entire family to partake in!
