Many of these parents are members of the National Guard who recently returned from overseas deployment, and the event provided a peaceful and fun activity to bond with their children.

This is the first event under The Smith Center’s new Community Outreach Performing Artists program, providing nurturing experiences to children of military parents in Southern Nevada. This new program at The Smith Center, including today’s event, is made possible through funding from the John Krakauer Charitable Trust.
