The COLORADO BELLE continues their tradition of holding outdoor festivals along the RIVERWALK with the “ROCK ‘N’ RIBS FESTIVAL” at the outdoor stage and area adjacent to the Loading Dock Bar & Grille on Fri-Sun, May 27-29 (4 p.m.-11 p.m.). Live music with a classic rock/rockabilly bent will flow thanks to two bands—Neil Morrow and Lil Elmo & The Cosmos. BBQ and other country dishes, plus beverages will be served up at nearby booths. There is no charge to listen to the music; food and beverage is sold separately.
Two years ago, the Riverside Resort took a chance on a new comedy show featuring a variety of comedians new to the Laughlin area with comedian Gabe Lopez serving as show’s producer, performer and emcee. That was the first Memorial Weekend Comedy Festival.
If you are a local, or a regular visitor to Laughlin—especially if your visits are on holiday weekends—you are aware that the AVI RESORT CASINO doesn’t simply wait for the 4th of July to set off a major fireworks display. Nope. Beginning in 1996, and continuing every year since, they have been filling the skies above the Colorado River with the amped-up creations of ZAMBELLI INTERNATIONALE FIREWORKS on Memorial Day weekend, the 4th of July and Labor Day weekend.
