First Friday Expands To Fremont Street

Las Vegas’ First Friday art festival will be dark in July, for the first time in three years. The one-month hiatus is a pause to incorporate changes coming to the fest, a retooling that will include a larger footprint that will continue to encompass the Arts District, but will now also extend to Symphony Park and Fremont East.

Other tweaks include making the fest more environmentally friendly, and a decision to go flyer free.

What does the latest expansion mean to the focus of Las Vegas’ First Friday?
