Historic Water Street continues to groove into growth and fun with the Henderson community in downtown Henderson, Water Street District.
HENDERSON, NV (October 2017) – Who’s ready to boogie on down to Water Street with us for our October edition of Last Friday, Just Add Water Street? On October 27, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., this last Friday of the month brings a special edition of Last Friday, Just Add Water Street: an 80’s themed skate costume party, roller skating derby, and roller skate rentals just in time for Halloween- complete with a best-dressed costume contest.
Last Friday, Just Add Water Street event continues to draw crowds of over 5,000 people to this otherwise sleepy little town on a typical Friday night. Due to so much attention from the Vegas Valley foodie community, two of Las Vegas’ most notable Strip chefs are vacating their kitchens on a Friday night to compete in a live Foodie Challenge!
This special edition of Last Friday is inspired and crafted around 80’s nostalgia. Family’s should head down to Water Street in their best 80’s gear and skate to hoppin’ 80’s tunes to live music by Image Club, J Gibbs, and Undecided. There will also be a live DJ performance by DJ Cammi alongside bites from local food trucks and foodie pop up activations.
Last Friday continues to celebrate all things artistic with artist Heather Richileau who will be painting a Vegas Strong mural to be auctioned off during our event with 100% of the money going to charity.
The live fun gets even more exciting with the Foodie Challenge kicking off at 6:30 p.m. Local celebrated executive chefs, Stephen Hopcraft of STK Las Vegas at the Cosmopolitan faces off against Border Grill chef, Mike Minor at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The foodie challenge consists of a secret list of foods used to prepare 1 to 3 items that will then be judged by a mix of local media, food writers and influencers. Celebrity Chef, Scott Commings, winner of Fox's Hell's Kitchen, season 12, and a local Henderson resident, will oversee the event with our emcee from Lotus Broadcasting's 97.1 The Point, Lorrin Bond, who is a DJ and host.
As always, general admission to the Last Friday, JAWS Festival is complimentary, but there is also a VIP experience available at $30.00 per person with sponsored drinks by Helix Vodka and a complimentary food and dessert ticket from a participating food truck or foodie pop up.
