Discover September 2018
At the center of every circus is a 42 foot ring. And now that ring is coming to Las Vegas. On September 22, for one night only, UNLV’s Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall, will play host to 42ft – A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels, a show which dares audiences to take a metaphorical leap into the circus ring to experience the endurance of this evolving art form. Marvel at a veritable menagerie of 1930s-inspired circus acts with their own mechanical twists, all reinvented in timber, steel, ingenuity, plus a little clowning around, of course. And to celebrate the role animals have played in the circus throughout its history, a stunning mechanical horse comes to life.

A healthy bottlenose dolphin calf made her debut at The Mirage last month to first-time mom Sofi at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. She has quickly taken to her surroundings and is nursing well and bonding with her mother, closely following mom around the habitat. Sofi and her calf are in the Birthing and Research pool, which is open to public viewing during the facility’s operational hours. Guests are welcome to see the calf and discover how conservation efforts today help preserve these beautiful animals in the wild for future generations to enjoy.
