Back-to-School Fairs In Las Vegas

Back-to-School Fairs In Las Vegas

Published On August 7, 2013 | By Christa Schueler | Cafe Mom, Community, Family, Family Events, Just For Dads

That first day of school is only three weeks away and if you’re a parent of student here in Southern Nevada, you’re probably getting your child (and yourself) prepared. Shopping for school supplies and clothing, making the rounds to doctors and dentists for check-ups, and squeezing in last minute fun can be exhausting and stressful, not to mention tough on the wallet. Fortunately, back-to-school fairs in Las Vegas are available throughout the valley to assist parents with supplies, check-ups and oh yes, fun!  These fairs are also a great asset to those who are new to the Clark County School District (CCSD) as some of them provide information on transportation, school regulations and various programs.

Here’s a list of back-to-school fairs here in Southern Nevada:
