If you plan to have a relaxing holiday in Las Vegas, the stakes are piled high against you; with so much to do, there’s no chance for an eat-and-sleep vacation here. While the action-packed THQ Supercross races take off in the first week of May, the Stars, Cars and Guitars Motorheads Festival are just the right place for a motor-loving family. On May 5th, the Freedom Park gets a festive look with the Cinco De Mayo celebrations; from May 8th to 12th, the San Gennaro feast offers carnival fun along with fabulous food and in mid-May is the famed Helldorado Days, a festival that celebrates the best of Las Vegas. From golf and poker to history shows, this festival is a nostalgic tour for locals and tourists.
June brings summer and hotter events like the Cine Vegas Film Festival in the middle of the month, the Grovefest Music Festival in the end of June with outdoor concerts, food and craft stalls and the International Truck Show where you can watch a beauty contest held for trucks. The World Series of Poker also takes place in June-July; for serious players, this IS the event of the year. If you are into fitness, you will enjoy Shawn Ray’s Colorado Pro Am Classic, an exposition that focuses on strength training and keeping fit.
Fourth of July celebrations in Las Vegas are riotous with plenty of fireworks, parties and cheering in different places; watch hotels and mega-resorts compete to host the grandest party in town.
