RecreationCenter logoThe annual Mesquite Days celebration is planned for May 4 through 8 and this year will be held on the Oasis Special Events Parking Lot at 897 West Mesquite Blvd. Nicholas Montoya, organizer of the event, also announced that Davis Amusement Cascadia will bring an exciting lineup of rides, fun games, and tasty food to the four day celebration.

May 7 is the parade date and entry applications are available at the Mesquite Rec Center, the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce office or on the City’s website.

The highlight of the amusement area will be an 82-foot tall gondola Ferris wheel that will light the evening skies over Mesquite.

A limited number of advance sale ride tickets are now available during open hours at the Rec Center located at 100 W. Old Mill Road.   Advance sale tickets are cash only and will be on sale until 5 p.m. Thursday, May 5 or until sold out.

Each ticket is good for unlimited rides, for one person, one day, and any day of the event. Ticket holders will exchange their advanced sales ticket for one armband at the carnival ticket box office. The price discount will not be available when purchasing an armband ticket at the carnival office after May 5. All house & safety rules apply.

Vendor booth reservations are available through the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce  or phone 702-346-2902.

The Athletics and Leisure Services department is coordinating other activities and programs with the historical society, City of Mesquite Community/Senior Center and various committees for the four day event and is looking forward to another great celebration.
