LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The Conservation District of Southern Nevada invites the community to attend the third Annual Solarbration solar festival which will be held Saturday, October 11, 2014 at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center from noon to 4 p.m. The purpose of the festival is to blend art, technology and outreach to promote renewable energy, inspire conservation, and support sustainable communities.
The Solarbration festival will offer the community the opportunity to enjoy solar-powered art, live music, food and fun. Plus, there will be solar demonstrations and the latest information on sustainable energy.
“We promise to deliver a fun-filled family event that will be a one-stop location for everything related to going solar,” said Jon Wardlaw, Commission Chairman of the Conservation District of Southern Nevada. “We will have all the latest information regarding energy rebates, tax credits, solar financing, and lots of hands-on activities for all ages.”
Like last year, the event will be “bike friendly” and promises to be even more fun and activity-packed than last year. The Lifelong Learning Center is located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. (I-215 and Windmill Lane) right near the Clark County 215 trail. Bike clubs are encouraged to make a ride out of the event.

And the Food Trucks and live bands will be there so the evening will be complete with great food as well.
