Senior Expo to set up at Nugget

Updated June 2, 2021 - 10:14 am

The Pahrump Nugget will be the spot to go for seniors on Friday.

The Nevada Senior Expo Series is heading to the Nugget, and a list of offerings is slated for those age 50 or older.

“Seniors are feeling isolated and bored due to the pandemic restrictions and the Senior Expo is a good day for them to get out and socialize with other seniors and local businesses in a safe, healthy environment,” said Craig Levine, the event producer.

The expo, part of a series of events across Southern Nevada, expanded to Pahrump this year.

According to a release, “These senior expos help educate and inform local seniors on the latest products, services, and opportunities to help keep them in a state of youngness. With 35 vendors on-site sampling, selling, and demonstrating hundreds of products and services, this new expo is an opportunity to get off the couch and spend the day with other seniors.”

The expo will feature a “spin to win” wheel, where attendees can take home prizes donated by vendors.

Additionally, the first 100 visitors to attend will receive a goody bag to collect more giveaways from vendors, including mini-brooms, Band-Aid containers and jar openers, just to name a few items available.

“The vendors really put a lot of time and effort into introducing themselves to the local seniors. They want to make a good impression and they are going out of their way to offer the attending seniors real opportunities,” said Levine.

The expo has moved across the state in recent months.

“We just ran eight senior expos in October and November in Las Vegas and Henderson casinos and our safety precautions are very sound,” stated Craig Levine.

The Pahrump Senior Expo will kick off at 10 a.m. on Friday at the Pahrump Nugget and is free to attend for all seniors.

The one-day event comes to a close at 3 p.m.

“So, if you are over 50 and feeling cooped up, you do not want to miss going to the Senior Expo,” a press release stated. “It is a great way to learn what your local businesses can and will do to help you in making the most of your later years.”

The Pahrump Senior Expo is produced by LocalEvents.vegas, a consumer exposition company, that hosts a series of 16 annual senior expos throughout Southern Nevada. For more, call 702-331-1350 or email Info@LocalEvents.vegas
