New Family Friendly Park Opens! Craig Ranch Regional Park Opens With Beatles Tribute Show
Craig Ranch Regional Park Amphitheater will kick off its live performance series with Yesterday – The Beatles Tribute Show on John Lennon’s birthday, Oct. 9. Performing the classic hits of the world’s most famous band, Yesterday will christen the brand new venue with the spirit of The Beatles. The good vibes continue on Saturday, Oct. 10 with the original jazz-rock-blues band WAR, who will get the crowd going with their iconic songs “Low Rider”, “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” and more. Country Artist Sammy Kershaw will ride in on Friday, Oct. 23, entertaining patrons with his soulful southern rock and Cajun-inspired vocals. Finally, the grand opening performance series closes with longtime comedian Paul Rodriguez on Saturday, Oct. 24, who will crack up audiences with his unique brand of Latin-American humor and universal appeal.
“We are eager to share this new venue with the public,” said North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee. “Our vision was to make Craig Ranch Regional Park Amphitheater the epicenter of culture for this community, and we are confident that our grand opening celebration will showcase the promised commitment to providing a lively, inviting and safe leisure space. We hope to see an amphitheater filled with family and friends this October, and we encourage everyone from all nearby communities to come check it out. I want North Las Vegas to become our region’s “festival community”.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. with shows beginning at 8 p.m. and guests are encouraged to come to the park early for the best views. Lawn seating, complete with lake and mountain vistas, is available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The amphitheater will offer specialty curated fare and libations for purchase from local food trucks and community concessionaires while guests that wish to bring their own fare are encouraged to do so and experience the park's many amenities, gazebos and shade structures.
