First Friday celebrates the Harvest at monthly event

By Brianna Vargas. CREATED Aug 27, 2014

It's that time again. The First Friday Las Vegas celebration is back Sept. 5 to host a new twist on an old favorite.

The Downtown Las Vegas Art District will soon be bustling with artists and performers displaying their dedication to the "Harvest."

The festival will celebrate renewal capturing the natural resources the earth provides as well as harvesting community outreach, passion and imagination.

Although First Friday will stick to some of the local favorites including Arts Row, the Bazaar, the Hub, and the Shuffle Zone, the event will reveal new attractions to capture the season.

A local guerrilla artist and builder will set up hand demonstrations of his custom built and innovative creations.

Ruzo Logic is known for his touch on urban sustainability in which he converts industrial shipping palettes into one-of-kind gardening beds.

Think Safe Zone will incorporate a new partner featuring Pink Hearts, a nonprofit charity that supports the fight against childhood cancer.

In honor of a local four-year-old diagnosed with neuroblastoma, children attending are invited to decorate pots and plant a flower or vegetable.

All donations will go to Childhood Cancer Research.

Other popular events include KidZone with face painting, Lug Vegas Legos and artwork and dance lessons from Krevenko from 5-9 p.m.

Green Street will feature green initiatives including a variety of electric cars and ideas to re-purpose Halloween costumes.

Cowtown will highlight Horses for Heroes, a petting zoo and Helldorado cowboys.

First Friday runs from 5-11 p.m. located in the Art District at 1228 South Casino Center Boulevard.
