Date Night Deals

Another weekend is fast approaching, and there are a few great activities you can do this weekend for free.

If you are a BYU fan (we sure are--Go Cougars!), then you don't want to miss the tailgate party taking place Saturday Oct 10th at 4pm at Sam Boyd Stadium. The cost is free, although there will be food there for purchase if you like (meal ticket is $10). Wear your blue and white and come on out for a fun afternoon.

There is also a pre-game fireside put on by the BYU football team Friday night at 7pm at the Green Valley Stake Center, located 410 N. Valle Verde in Henderson. Sunday dress please.

If football is not your thing, then you may want to head over to Lake Las Vegas instead. This weekend is the St. Rose Regatta Dragon Boat Festival, raising money for breast cancer. It is free to watch, although donations will be accepted. The festivities begin at 10am Saturday Oct 10 and go until 4pm. There will be entertainment running all day and venues set up where food and drinks can be purchased.

The info on the races says, "Each 44 foot, solid teak, Chinese war canoe accommodates a full 22-person crew, consisting of 20 paddlers, a drummer, & a steersperson. Don’t miss the excitement as each crew competes in three 500-meter race heats. The competition is friendly & should prove to be a great time for everyone." Sounds like a fun event to watch.

  1. Robyn,

    I'm having a garden tour at my house that morning from 10-12. Do you have any details about the boats in the afternoon? That's a little over an hour away from us. Is this an annual event? Perhaps we could go next year. Is there a website with more info?

    Also, I have room for a few more adults to attend my garden tour/class, as I had several last minute cancellations. If anyone is interested in attending, you can read details and reserve a spot here:
