Last Friday : Just Add Water Street features Friday Night Foodie Challenge (KVCW)

This weekend you can take part in the Last Friday: Just add Water Street event in the downtown historic Water Street.

Antonio Nunez and Scott Commings joined us in the CW studio to tell us all about it, and to talk about plus a fun food challenge they have going on.

Last Friday is a community-centric initiative to inspire an ongoing effort between all sectors of Henderson both private and public with the historic Water Street District in the City of Henderson for the betterment of sustainable community growth while giving back.

Last Friday is a FREE Community Event for all ages, taking place this Friday, Nov. 24. It features unique local arts and crafts perfect for gift-giving. It also features Sip, Shop & Be Merry (where ladies get one FREE glass of wine) and FREE photos with Santa.

Additionally, attendees will enjoy Salsa Dancing by Salsa Hub, Rod’s Produce Market, food trucks, three live music acts, and a kid’s area with two bounce houses!

The event gives back to Toys For Tots, Coats4Cookes, Sunrise Children’s Foundation, and Fraternity of the Desert Bighorn.

Locals are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys For Tots for children in need, or bring gently used coats, socks, blankets or warm clothes to benefit Coats4Cookies, which helps the local homeless community.

In exchange for any new toy or gently used item, the pastry chefs at STK Las Vegas at The Cosmopolitan, Buddy V.’s at The Venetian, and Rolling in Dough Bakery are baking cookies as a thank you. Cookies will also be sold with 100-percent of the proceeds benefitting Coats4Cookies.
