City of Lights Jazz and R&B Festival
The annual Las Vegas City of Lights Jazz and R&B Festival takes place at the Clark County Government Amphitheater where those who enjoy a toe-tapping good time should pack a camping chair, their sun hat and some snacks and refreshments and head on down to see live acts such as Will Downing, Euge Groove, Karen Briggs' Soulchestra and Fattburger. Craft and food stalls are also available and festival-goers can enjoy getting out into the Nevada heat to listen to some good old Rhythm and Blues.
Rock �n� Roll Las Vegas Marathon
The Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon takes place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino where runners can enjoy the sights and sounds of Sin City, and spectators get into the swing of things with live entertainment, including music, cheerleaders, and Vegas-inspired fanfare. Runners and spectators alike can expect a high-energy, rockin' run and a post-race party like no other - it's in Vegas after all. The half marathon has a wave start, allowing runners plenty of elbow room to enjoy the run and the sideline entertainment along the way.
National Finals Rodeo
Referred to as the 'Superbowl of Rodeos', cowboys and cowgirls from across America and Canada work hard all year in the hope of being one of the top 15 to qualify for the NFR and to compete for the prize money. Events include bull riding, calf roping, team roping, saddle bronco riding, bareback riding, steer wrestling and barrel racing.
The Festival of the Burning Man is one of the most unique festivals. Drawing crowds of over 20,000 each year from all over the world, the celebration is of art, creativity and humanity. Unlike most other festivals in the world, this one has no commerce; no shops, no rock stars, no rollercoasters. It is simply a gathering, albeit a very large one. The Black Rock Desert, two or three hours north of Reno is the setting. The serenity of the place allows festival goers the environment to feel uninhibited and expressive. The emphasis is on community and people helping one another and all who attend do so in friendship. And on the last day, the bonfire of the Burning Man takes place setting the skies alight in fire while the community dances around. Due to the non-commercial nature of the festival, those attending are advised to bring everything they might need for themselves with them, as little or nothing will be available. The art theme for 2012 is 'Fertility 2.0'.
Cirque du Soleil
The world famous Cirque du Soleil - a riot of costumes, colours and contortionists - brings its unique magic to Las Vegas with several immensely popular shows, including Mystère, which has been honoured as 'Las Vegas' Best Production Show'. Other shows include the aquatic show 'O' at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, KÁ at the MGM Grand and the latest 'The Beatles - Love' at the Mirage.
