The Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade

The Patriotic Parade that has been held in Summerlin is a time-honored tradition for July 4th festivities in Las Vegas for 26 years. And this year it’s back! There are plans in the works to deliver another outstanding parade day experience by putting together a unique celebration to meet the extraordinary times we’re in.

For the 27th year, you are invited to be a part of a reimagined celebration of our country’s big day – America’s Birthday Party Parade. A show like no other, this traveling party will feature eye-catching parade floats, towering balloons, and captivating performances that have become 4th of July traditions in Summerlin. No grandstands or announcer booths this year; just a 30-minute, entertainment-packed community showcase with all the pageantry and spirit you’ve come to expect.

Entries will include professionally decorated parade floats with larger-than-life displays of birthday cakes, party hats, an undersea birthday jubilee and other dazzling patriotic celebrations; giant inflatable balloons including a 25-foot birthday cake, a 30-foot American flag and 25-foot Uncle Sam Hat; exciting performances by the Drumbots, Desert Angels gospel choir, the West Las Vegas Arts Center performance ensemble, Danza del Carrizo Native American dancers, Swing It Sisters, Guan Strong lion dancers, stilt walkers and a live DJ spinning beats through the streets.  There will also be appearances by beloved cartoon characters, community mascots, princesses and superheroes. And the parade route will be lined end-to-end with American flags

The parade is free and open to the public. Spectators are asked to follow the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 guidance for mask-wearing, social distancing and hand washing. Everyone is encouraged to arrive early, wear sunscreen and bring water and hand sanitizer.

The parade starts at the corner of Hillpointe Road and Hills Center Drive, travels south on Hills Center to Village Center Circle, then turns west on Trails Center Drive ending at the Trails Park.

International Day Of Yoga

Do you enjoy Yoga?  It seems there has been a lot of interest in yoga these days, especially during the pandemic when many people started using yoga as a way to de-stress and keep themselves in shape.

On June 21, 2021, head to the lawn at Downtown Summerlin to celebrate the International Day of Yoga.  Activates take place 7:30 – 8:30. Come and learn why so many people around the world are so into it. Be sure to bring your friends, family, yoga mat (or beach towel), and join the TruTribe for an evening of Vin/Yin with Jessica Johns & KateLynn Davenport featuring a live DJ, light refreshments, and photo ops!

Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolizing the union of body and consciousness. Today it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity. Recognizing its universal appeal, on 11 December 2014, the United Nations proclaimed 21of June as the International Day of Yoga. The International Day of Yoga aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga.  Yoga is more than a physical activity. In the words of one of its most famous practitioners, the late B. K. S. Iyengar, “Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions.”

Redpoint and Redpoint Square– the last frontier?

Summerlin, located on the west side of the Las Vegas Valley is developing the last remaining land in the master-plan.  The two villages are called Redpoint Village and the second is Redpoint Square.

The two villages offer an interesting and diverse mix of residential homes, townhomes, mixed-use office and retail developments and of course lots of parks, open space and trails – something Summerlin is known for.  Did you know that Summerlin ranked number 3 as the top selling master-plan in the country?

Redpoint Village will be located along the northern border of Far Hills Drive, and is a key gateway into Summerlin West, with eight new single-family neighborhoods from top Summerlin homebuilders, including Woodside, Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison (formerly William Lyons Homes), Lennar, Pardee and Pulte.

Redpoint Square

Travel a bit north of Redpoint is Redpoint Square, featuring a mixture of single family attached and detached homes from builders including Richmond American Homes, KB Homes, Toll Brothers, Taylor Morrison, Lennar and Woodside.

Redpoint Square, is beginning to take shape with its first neighborhood. now selling, Moro Rock by Richmond American Homes.  There are two duet town home models priced from the high $200,000s.  Redpoint Square will be suited for first-time buyers, millennials, families, executives, and retirees.  Luxury home living opportunities will be available too. 

inside model home

According to Danielle Bisterfeldt, vice president of marketing for Summerlin, Summerlin West is the next chapter in the community’s 30-year history as one of the country’s premier and top-selling master plans.

Bisterfeldt stated “Situated on elevated topography overlooking the valley, the Summerlin West area boasts an elevation that is more than 4,550 feet above sea level at its highest point, creating an abundance of vantage points and vistas. Summerlin’s higher elevations, which deliver temperatures up to 5 degrees cooler than the Strip, support a greater variety of naturally occurring vegetation, a characteristic indicative of the community given its location along the valley’s elevated western rim.”

Construction at Redpoint Square

“Perhaps the greatest distinction of Summerlin West, with Redpoint and Redpoint Square, will be its greater diversity of home products that will make the area truly multigenerational,” she said. “Summerlin West will boast a greater volume of smaller and attached home products that encourage a more experiential lifestyle and are well-suited for first-time homebuyers, millennials and retirees who prefer smaller-footprint living. At the same time, Summerlin West will feature many single-family neighborhoods in a variety of sizes and price points, along with estates and luxury living opportunities. The goal is to create a truly diverse region of the community that will resonate with a wide variety of homebuyers seeking a 21st-century lifestyle.”

This year Summerlin is marking its 30th anniversary and it offers so many amenities. They include more than 250 parks of all sizes; resident-exclusive community centers, pools and events; 150-plus miles of interconnected trails; 10 golf courses; 26 public, private and charter schools; a public library and performing arts center; Summerlin Hospital Medical Center; houses of worship representing a dozen different faiths; office parks; and neighborhood shopping centers. Downtown Summerlin offers fashion, dining, entertainment, Red Rock Resort, office towers and the City National Arena, which is the Vegas Golden Knights practice facility. The Las Vegas Ballpark is a world-class Triple-A baseball stadium and home of the Las Vegas Aviators.

Summerlin housing market is open for business

Well here we are at the unofficial start of summer – Memorial Day weekend just passed, and we are trying to get back to some kind of normalcy.  Many families had  barbecues which have always been a huge Memorial Day Tradition; however, this year they probably included less guests than in years past – probably just immediate family. I was fortunate enough to take my boat out this weekend – just with my family.

Another Memorial Day tradition is looking for new houses and one thing that is for sure the master-planned community of Summerlin is ready.  Some of the nation’s top homebuilders have contributed to making Summerlin what it is today – The top selling master-planned community west of the Mississippi.

The homebuilders have all put in place social distancing guidelines and cleaning after each viewing.  As a Realtor I do the same with the homes I show for sale.  We at the Jeff Howard Group show by appointment only and follow social distancing protocols.  Besides that, we all wear masks, gloves and booties inside the home being shown, and sanitize our hands regularly.  If you would like a virtual tour prior to looking at a home in person, I will gladly go and film a virtual tour and concentrate on specific interests you might have. I go the extra mile for my clients, the home builders also have virtual tours you can look at.

When you decide on your forever home, I can set up virtual meetings with lenders,  inspectors, escrow and anyone else we need to communicate with so you are not coming into personal contact with any more people than you want to. Meetings can be done via Zoom or another video platform, signing can be electronic. My point is, we can do everything in a way that makes you feel comfortable and safe. After all I want to be your Realtor for life… a long healthy life!

Southern Nevada’s Longest Running Biking Event – Tour de Summerlin

Tour de Summerlin will mark the 20th year of this event making it the longest running bicycle event on Southern Nevada. This event will be held on Saturday April 25 and is made possible through the encouragement and support of the beautiful master-plan of Summerlin and the Howard Hughes Corporation.  When it was created in 2000 the object was – the most ‘rider friendly’ bicycling event in the southwest, and that same idea stuck to this mission year after year after year.

This event shows off the active lifestyle for which this area is known for with scenic backdrops that make it one of the best places to bicycle in the entire Southwest. It is a great way to see a good amount of the villages in Summerlin and if you are looking for a home to purchase in the master-plan you can get a feel of where you might want to live.  After the race contact me and we can discuss what you are looking for in a neighborhood and a home.

One of the most unique aspects of the Tour de Summerlin is the abundant amount of biking lanes that are used throughout the different routes. The #1 commitment has always been rider safety and utilizing miles and miles of biking lanes created for a ‘rider friendly’ experience. It’s also hard to beat the winning combination of Summerlin’s man-made amenities and Mother Nature.

This year’s start and finish line will again be located at beautiful Downtown Summerlin -the ultimate destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in southern Nevada. Invite your family and friends to come out and enjoy a day of shopping and dining before heading over to the finish line to cheer you on! The Tour de Summerlin is sure to create a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire community.  The Registration fee is $80.  More information and registration go to www.tourdesummerlin.com

The Tour de Summerlin will continue to offer three different ride distances: 80, 40 and 20 miles. With it being so early in the biking season (April), the sponsors believe that it’s important to maintain routes that are still challenging enough for the most serious riders, but also attainable for those riders who are looking to push themselves to a higher level or complete a long distance for the first time as the weather begins to warm. The sponsors are constantly striving to enhance and improve the ride experiences. This involves evaluating current and future road construction, possible safety issues and minimizing stoplight and stop sign constrictions.  Stay tuned for any last minute route changes by following Tour de Summerlin on Facebook and Twitter

After the race, join the activities for all the action at Downtown Summerlin’s “Wellness Festival” featuring complimentary fitness classes, entertainment, children’s activities and more!

Start Times for Tour de Summerlin
7 AM – 80 mile ride
8:15 AM – 40 mile ride
9:15 AM – 20 mile ride

One more thing -If you are traveling from out of the area and would like to rent a bicycle for the event, we’ve got you covered. Just contact McGhies Ski, Bike & Board at 702-252-8077 and they will reserve a bike for you and get you properly fitted so you are riding the correctly sized bike. Open 7am – 4pm.
