Clark County Commission Chairman Jim Gibson will host “A Slice of Summer” on Friday, June 17, of 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Paradise Recreation Center, located at 4775 McLeod Drive near Tropicana Ave.
This free event kicks off Father’s Day weekend with free food from Abuela’s Tacos for the first 200 people, bouncy houses, carnival games, a mechanical bull for ages 13 and up, and crafts . All children must be accompanied by an adult. Those interested in attending should register at the Paradise Recreation Center or by calling (702) 455-7513.
“I’m not sure there’s a better way to celebrate dads than to be at an event the whole family can enjoy,” President Gibson said. “Paradise Recreation Center is located in a well-established community in District G. I am thrilled that we can host an event like this to kick off the summer and showcase the amenities and activities this facility has to offer to the region.”
