Check out FUN10 every Sunday for the details on ten awesome events happening around town. It’s a cool read, and a great way to get started planning your entertainment for the week.

Increased Recreational Access in Las Vegas
The NPS is focused on ensuring employees, their families, volunteers and visitors are safe by following the most current guidance from the CDC, Office of Personnel Management, Office of Emergency Management, and other federal, state and local health authorities.
Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state and local public health authorities, Lake Mead National Recreation Area is increasing recreational access for pass holders.
Beginning at 9 a.m. May 2, the following park entrance stations in Nevada will be open to annual pass holders:
Boulder Entrance Station
Lake Mead Parkway Entrance Station
Lake Mead Boulevard Entrance Station
Northshore Entrance Station
Cottonwood Cove Entrance Station
Beginning 9 a.m. May 4, annual passes will also be required for the following locations in Arizona:
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, no transactions of currency or credit cards will occur at the entrance station.
The health and safety of our visitors, employees, volunteers and partners continues to be paramount. At Lake Mead, our operational approach will be to examine each facility function and service provided to ensure those operations comply with current public health guidance and will be regularly monitored.
While these areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, a return to full operations will continue to be phased and services are limited. When recreating, the public should follow local health areas orders, avoid crowding and practice Leave no Trace principles, including pack-in and pack-out, to keep outdoor spaces safer and healthier.
The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19, and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
