Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The weekend is here and good news, there's a whole lot of local-friendly events going on around town.
UNLV hosts the Sportco Kick-Off Classic Softball Tournament this weekend. The women's first game is Friday at 3:45 p.m. against DePaul and they take on UCF on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Get on over to Eller Media Stadium on UNLV campus. Kids under 12 are free of charge!
If bats, balls and bases isn't your idea of a fun-filled weekend, then let me tell you about a brand-new art exhibition in town. Andy Warhol, you know the great American artist known for his iconic celebrity and advertisement pop art? Well, lucky for us, the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art will showcase 59 works from the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. This exhibit here in Las Vegas is the only comprehensive Andy Warhol collection in the country, outside of Pittsburgh. If you've been looking for a premium cultural destination, "Warhol Out West" will blow you away. You have until October 27 to explore Warhol's work.
And here's an event the kids will go wild for! It's time for the Polar Bear Plunge at the Henderson Multigenerational Activity Pool. This event invites the Valley out for a chilly plunge down the slide. The pool is usually shut down all Winter long, but because we're a funky, crazy, fun city doors will open on Saturday (only) from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Those who attend will enjoy warm winter treats, activities and a bounce house. Admission is just $5 per person.
