Things to Do in Las Vegas This Weekend
From Juneteenth to Father’s Day celebrations.

First it was restaurants. Then it was casinos. Now pool parties are back in Vegas. Well, sorta. The Wynn and Cosmopolitan are reintroducing the concept with capacity restrictions and a lounge vibe in place of a club vibe. Yet the weekend is about way more than tanning lotion and bottle service. Father’s Day arrives in the era of social distancing and marches continue for social justice with more events planned to coincide with Juneteenth. There’s a lot going on and we’re excited to see Vegas celebrate love, family, and diversity. But like other parts of the country, Nevada is marking an upstick in COVID-19 cases. So wear a mask when out and about and keep your distance. We have a lot to be grateful for this weekend and no matter what you choose to do, take one extra step to make your community a better place.
