LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Clark County is canceling large events at parks and recreation facilities “until further notice” over coronavirus concerns. All events with 250 attendees or more are affected.

Some of these events include:

  • Tacos and Tamales: Saturday, March 28, Desert Breeze Park
  • The Clark County Fair: April 8-12 in Logandale
  • Eggstravaganza: April 10 at Whitney Park (along with other Easter and spring holiday events)
  • Jazz in the Park: Saturdays, May 9, 16, 23, 30 and June 6, Clark County Government Center Amphitheater

All sports tournaments and events that meet the 250 person attendance threshold will also be canceled until further notice.

Beginning Monday, March 16, scheduled programs, field trips and activities at the Cora Coleman and West Flamingo senior centers are canceled. While the facilities remain open, programming is being suspended due to older people being at an increased risk for contracting COVID-19.

The county says smaller activities, classes and swim lessons, as well as County community centers, aquatics facilities and parks will remain open and on their regular schedules.

“While health officials advise that the risk of contracting coronavirus remains low in Southern Nevada, Clark County is taking this proactive step out of an abundance of caution to protect the health and safety of our community,” a county spokeswoman noted in a press release.

The county has also ramped up cleaning procedures, adding more cleaning and sanitizing efforts in all facilities. Hand sanitizer stations have also been added in certain areas.

Large groups with reservation inquiries should contact Clark County Parks & Recreation at 702-455-8200.
