The three-day event will be packed with food stalls and even stage performances that will play non-stop throughout the festival. Popular Vegas entertainers such as John Park the Funny Waiter, Scott Land Marionettes, and the Hyjinx Duo are just some of the performers who will grace the event.
Parents who plan on bringing along their kids will be happy to know that there will be arts and craft activity areas called KidZone. Here families can learn from experts and make their crafts in groups of like-minded individuals.
Las Vegas has an extensive and varied array of events scheduled for second half of 2016. Such variety is helping Sin City regain its footing and re-establish itself as the entertainment capital of the world. Variables like online gaming began impacting Vegas back in 2012 and have driven revenues down ever since. With groundbreaking graphics, cutting-edge designs, and a huge lineup of commercially-licensed casino games created by the likes of Marvel and DC, Las Vegas casinos suffered because they were unable to keep up with the manner in which their digital counterparts released innovations.
With Nevada’s gaming giants bound by the perils of being a land-based operator, they have instead started to look at offering huge events, conventions and expos as the perfect way to counter their decreasing profits – and it’s worked wonders. Vegas businesses have now expanded their reach and in so, have attracted new target markets to the city – people who would’ve never previously visited Sin City.
Tickets to the event cost $9 for general admission, $7 for seniors, and $4 for kids. There’s also a special ticket price for military personnel, which is around $7 per ticket. Children below 12-years of age will be allowed in for free.
For vendors who want to be part of the event, they will be glad to know that the festival doesn’t charge for application fees. Credit cards will not be billed unless their application is accepted.
