Things To Do On Veterans Day
For those who don’t know the history of the day, November 11 commemorates the end of World War I and the signing of the armistice on that date in 1918, putting an end to the four years of violence. Although not known as “Veterans’ Day” in every country November 11 is recognized by many nations worldwide as a day to remember, celebrate, and thank veterans for their service.
With Federal Government offices, as well as some schools and businesses, closed to observe the day, we thought we’d provide you with some things to do on Veterans Day in Las Vegas:
Visit Anthony’s Burgers & Brews. Our gourmet burger and brew bar will offer a Bubbles & Brews salute to Veterans on Nov. 11 by offering our veterans a free beer or glass of sparkling wine with the purchase of one of their delicious Angus beef burgers. Open 4-10 pm. No minors.
Purchase tickets to our Holiday Spectacular concert. This is going to be one heck of a holiday show! The holiday concert and fundraising event benefits the Wounded Warrior Project, whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. The concert, which will take place on Sunday, Dec. 8 in our M Pavilion, will feature acclaimed singer and consummate entertainer Clint Holmes and a host of celebrity guests including Penn and Teller, actress and singer Pia Zadora and Mary Wilson, one of the original members of the Supremes. Tickets are just $20 and $25 and may be purchased at our box office located at Player Services.
Go to the Las Vegas Veteran’s Day Parade. Taking place from 9:30 am to 5 pm the Las Vegas Veterans Day Parade will honor the fallen and surviving members of our armed forces in the largest Veterans Day parade west of the Mississippi. The full day of events takes place in Downtown Las Vegas. For more information visit www.veteransparadelv.com
Visit Lake Mead. The National Park Service is honoring military veterans over Veterans Day weekend by offering free admission to all 401 national parks, including Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Go for a Run. The 3rd Annual Las Vegas National Veterans Day Run will take place at Floyd Lamb Park. The event will offer three distances, a timed 11k run, a timed 5k run and a 1 Mile family walk. If you prefer to just support our Veterans rather than run, they offer a supporter option, 100 percent of which is donated to their charity partner, Folds of Honor Foundation.
