2 APRIL POOLS’ DAY: Local children are invited to gather treasure at the municipal pool, and that’s no prank. The April Pools’ Day Plunge will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, followed by opening swimming at 4:30. The treasure hunt will be divided into three age categories: 5 and younger, 6-9 and 10-13. Participants need to bring their own waterproof Easter basket or plastic bag. Cost is $2 per participant; there is no cost for adults who watch or help their children in the pool. For more information, call the pool complex at 702-293-9286.
3 GET WILD: The weather is forecast to be perfect for spending time outdoors and the seasonal wildflowers should be starting to bloom. Head out for a hike on the Historic Railroad or River Mountain Loop trails at Lake Mead National Recreation Area or just take a drive through the park and stop at one of the overlooks.
