It’s time for Moapa Valley Days. This year the Moapa Valley Chamber of Commerce and other groups have organized another fun-filled weekend to celebrate the Moapa Valley community.
The Valley-wide Yard Sale will be held on Friday and Saturday. It is no ordinary yard sale. Dozens of families, groups and businesses will be holding sales.
An official map is published on page A7 of this edition. A similar online map can be found at moapavalleychamber.com. Applications to be included on the online map will still be accepted through Thursday. There is a $15 fee to be listed which can be paid online at moapavalleychamber.com, or at Alsum Insurance at 196 S Moapa Valley Blvd, Suite 4.
At the Old Logandale School, the Annual Spring Art Show will be held by the Moapa Valley Art Guild. The show will be open on Friday from noon to 5pm and on Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Admission is free and the show will exhibit original art from local artists both in and out of the guild. The show is open for any valley resident who wants to participate.

The Lost City Museum will feature some small town entertainment starting at noon on Saturday. Moapa Valley Revitalization Project (MVRP) is sponsoring cowboy poetry and a historical re-enactment by the Las Vegas chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers. Several area cowboy poets will be presenting their take on the world as they perform their folksy poems. The Buffalo Soldiers, a nationwide organization will teach about the brave acts of the African American regiments in the United States Army during the 1860s.
These events will be held outside the museum in the performance area and are free to the public.
Moapa Valley Chamber President Marjorie Holland encourages members of the community to come out and celebrate the Moapa Valley community.
“This event draws people in from outside the valley to come and find treasures, eat at our restaurants, and stay at the hotel,” Holland said. “Many come from far away every year. It increases tourist dollars and is a great way to showcase our valley. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun with something for everyone.”
