Knickerbocker Park in ProvidenceProvidence Knickerbocker Park was the place to be on the Fourth of July.  This is a beautiful park with acres of grass, play areas, fitness and picnic areas, not to forget the great dog park.  On the Fourth of July it acted as a magnet for residents of Providence and the Las Vegas Valley as we all gathered to enjoy the festivities. Earlier in the day, it was looking like rain might interrupt everything, but clear skies took over and it was beautiful as folks made their way to the park with their coolers, blankets and picnic baskets.  For those who preferred to pick up food after they got to the park, our favorite food truck was there.  Lines were long for Slidin' Thru's delicious sliders but they were worth the wait.  

And to keep cool, there were snow

Knickerbocker Park ViewKnickerbocker Park in Providence Las Vegas' master planned community in the Northwest part of the valley is a large, 15 acre park that offers athletic facilities, picnic areas, a dog park and incredible views.  The park itself is one of the nicest we've seen in the valley. There are separate play areas for ages 2 to 5 years old and 5 to 12 years old.  Yes, they have swings.  There are slides.  And there's a splash pad to enjoy on these hot Summer days.  There's a large grassy play field.  A baseball field.  And one of our favorite dog parks in town. The most amazing thing about Knickerbocker Park may be the views.  This is a perfect spot for the Fourth of July Fireworks show.  We expect this year's show to be incredible.  Tommy Rocker will be performing.

Providence Las Vegas Annual Garage SaleProvidence Las Vegas makes it easy for homeowners to do their Spring cleaning by organizing a garage sale on Saturday, May 19th.  The sale will run from 7:00 a.m. until noon.  Maps of the participating homes will be available noon on Friday at Knickerbocker Park.

For those who are considering participating, here are a couple pointers to a successful garage sale: First, and foremost, make sure you've put all valuables that could easily walk off in a secure, locked location.  Years ago, we held a garage sale at home we had already moved out of to get rid of tons of books and a few odds and ends.  Since we had already moved, we didn't worry about kleptomaniacs.  A lady came in who was dressed well.  She was a bit of a chatterbox with questions about the

Providence Las Vegas HomesProvidence in Las Vegas hosted their second annual Mad Mud Run on Saturday.  The crowds started gathering early in the morning and the races started at 10:00 a.m.  Competitors had the option of participating in either three mile or five mile races through the popular master planned community and various obstacles along the way.

The event was a success with 608 adults and almost 100 kids participating.  And, it raised more than $3000 in books and donations to Spread the Word Nevada.
