The city of Las Vegas is hosting two entertaining events Saturdays this month at the Charleston Heights Arts Center, located at 800 S. Brush St. Parking is free for both events.

 

 

“Storyslam: Facing Your Fears” begins at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 14. Members of the Las Vegas community will share their own personal, genuine stories with the audience, connected to the chosen theme for the evening, “Facing Your Fears.” A “storyslam” is a popular celebration of words and experiences that shape and define who we are. This event is appropriate for ages 13 and older and will run about 90 minutes, conducted by a master of ceremonies from the community. Suggested admission is $5 at the door or pay what you can. Parental guidance is suggested. For more information, call 702-229-ARTS (2787).
