Reading is Fun – Storytime at Town Square

Mommy Vegas Idea #10

Enjoy the Beauty of Fall with an Outdoor Twist on Storytime!

We love storytime, and we’re not terribly picky about the venue, give us a library nook, multipurpose room, bookstore, mall or even a yoga mat, and we’re set, but with this beautiful weather, nobody wants to be cooped up for storytime.  Town Square and Amazing Clowns have the perfect solution: the Reading is Fun storytime, every Wednesday from 11 am – 12 pm, in the park at Town Square.

Bring a blanket and settle in for a story or two, singing, dancing and other great pre-school readiness activities, while enjoying the beautiful fall weather!  They’ve incorporated the fun, fast-moving, interactive format of their clown shows, into an outdoor storytime, complete with books, balloon animals, singing, dancing, prizes, good old-fashioned storytelling, characters, and some great coupons and giveaways! 

The event is put on by Amazing Clowns, so obviously there is plenty of clowning around, but is refreshingly not too “clowny.” There is definitely a fair bit of clownery, including juggling, balancing acts, balloon animals and unicycle tricks, but in our experience, they have been very low-key. Often little or no make-up, leaving a truly friendly face to welcome even the timidest toddler.

So grab a blanket and a tote jammed with snacks and head down to Town Square for a fun-filled morning of learning and much, much more!

The Details

  • Day: Every Wednesday (occasionally cancelled for inclement weather)
  • Time: 11am – approximately 12pm
  • Where: Town Square Park
  • Getting there: Take I-215 to Las Vegas Boulevard, go North towards the Strip, take the overpass to Town Square (Between Fry’s Electronics and Town Square). Park near the center of Town Square. Walk to the grassy park between Children’s Park and Tommy Bahama’s.  We like to park in the lot just East of Stoney’s sort of nestled in behind the shops.
