Boulder City, NV 24th Annual Fine Arts Festival - Pictures of Bicentennial Park


This past weekend I posted about my trip on the Southern Nevada Railway train ride. Afterwards we headed over to the 24th Annual Boulder City Fine Arts Festival to enjoy the art and the food. The 2 day event was held in Bicentennial Park in the downtown area of the city.

I've also posted about Boulder City
before, with it's quaint small town charm that is a sharp contrast to the big city lights and expansion of Las Vegas. While it has the largest land area of any city in Nevada, it's growth is limited by restrictions on building permits and the city itself owning most of the vast open land in the Eldorado Valley. If you checked out the pictures from the train you'll catch a glimpse of how large it is, and also the contrast between the desert valley and the neatly manicured downtown that almost appears to be caught in time.

As you can see, it's a well attended event, and just like it's busy main street with antique stores and outdoor cafes that you can see in the pictures in my Boulder City post. Yes, it's a popular place for locals and tourists, alike. Just over the hill from downtown there are homes with amazing views of Lake Mead. Parks and recreation abound with fishing ponds, RC car and boat areas, BMX tracks and trails, and much more. Boulder City also remains one of the places in Nevada where gambling is still illegal to this day, something you might not expect in Nevada.

Boulder City's arts festival and it's many charming shops adds to the Arts and Culture and Community Events found in and around the Las Vegas Valley. The city itself adds another lifestyle choice among the many that are found here, making Las Vegas such a great place to call home.

EXCELLENT PICS!!! WOW those are some fantastic shots. The trees almost look 3D. BC sure is a cool little town. Your posts on it made me go check it out instead of just driving to the lake. A great place to hang out and relax. Lots of motorcycle enthusiasts head there for the cafes. Wouldn't mind having a place there. Maybe one of the houses with the lake views!.
