Las Vegas Events and Excursions

Here are a few Las Vegas events that look promising in the not so distant future.

October 11-12, 2014 Red Bull Air Races – Races at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  General Admission $39 Adult/$29 child/under 6 free.

Paul Bonhomme races through the track

October 16, 2014 7pm Scarlet & Gray Scrimmage – UNLV basketball pre-season invitation to Las Vegas.

Runnin' Rebel fans will get their first look at the 2014-15 squad on Oct. 16 at the Scarlet & Gray Showcase.

October 16 -18, 2014 Vegas Valley Book Festival – The Saturday events at the 4th Street School are focused on kids

November 4 & 5, 2014 Red Bull Global Rallycross – Last year this was held across the street from Mandalay Bay at the south end of the Las Vegas strip.  General admission about $30.

November 8 & 9, 2014 Aviation Nation – Last year’s event was cancelled from the government shut down fall out.  Nellis AFB opens its gates again this year for it’s open house, concluding with the Thunderbirds on each day.  The Friday prior usually has a preview day for the media.  No public access, but you can see the jets go through their paces from outside the fences by Las Vegas Blvd to the North, and E. Cheyenne to the South.

Ticket prices are listed.  Events without prices are free and provide a good chance to experience something to remember.  Photographs are from the linked websites- except Aviation Nation 2009 taken by my wife.
