Cadence Car Show gears up for second year

After attracting nearly 3,000 locals and car lovers for its inaugural event in 2021, the Cadence Car Show returns to Cadence Central Park on Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., featuring classic and modern vehicles, DJ entertainment, food trucks, a 21-and-older beer garden and unparalleled vistas of the Las Vegas Strip. The all-ages event is open to the public, with free admission and complimentary parking.

Approximately 200 vehicles and their owners will be in attendance to showcase their unique spark. Ten vehicles will be honored as Best in Show by a panel of judges. A DJ will kick off the event with a mix of top hits and doo-wop classics, and jam throughout the day.

On the culinary front, a variety of food trucks from across the valley will be on-site to serve the crowd with different types of cuisines for every taste. The current slate of food trucks, which is subject to change, spans the savory to sweet spectrum including: Guido Pie, Nattie’s Thai Kitchen, The Smokesman, The Torta Chaser, Hapahaole’s Hawaiian Street Tacos, Wetzel’s Pretzels and Meowee Wowee. Options from Las Vegas Kettle Corn also will be available for purchase.

For the 21-and-older crowd, Henderson’s Bad Beat Brewing will serve up various brews on draft in a fenced-off Beer Garden. Amid the continued climate and to promote guest safety, handwashing stations and sanitizing pumps will be located throughout the event.

The Cadence Car Show is pet-friendly, meaning leashed canine friends are invited to join, too. A Dog Hydration Station will be open near the Cadence information tent for four-legged friends and their humans to cool off.

Summerlin’s higher elevation keeps it cool

The master-planned community of Summerlin, synonymous with quality of life — thanks to robust amenities, thoughtful design, a wide range of homes by the country’s top homebuilders and active, outdoor spaces that encourage a healthy lifestyle — boasts yet another distinct advantage: its elevation. Summerlin sits along the western rim of the Las Vegas Valley at the base of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, at an average of 3,500 feet above sea level, with some areas of the community topping out around 4,000 feet. The community’s elevation delivers two proven advantages: cooler temperatures and an abundance of stunning vistas that offer sweeping views of the valley from many locations.
