Fans Invited To Friday's Spring Showcase
April 16, 2012
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV football team will wrap up spring practice by holding its Spring Showcase this Friday (April 20) from 5-7 p.m. at Rebel Park on the UNLV campus.
The family-friendly event is free and open to the public and all fans are encouraged to bring along their chairs and blankets to watch the festivities.
The Spring Showcase, however, includes much more than a scrimmage.
A fan festival at Rebel Park will include a bounce house, face-painting and carnival-style games -- all free of charge. Concession stands will also be open, offering food and drink for purchase.
Lotus Broadcasting will be hand to host the Showcase and will feature live interviews with Coach Hauck as well as others involved with UNLV football.
All fans will be invited to meet the players and get autographs immediately following the scrimmage.
This year's Showcase features a free youth football clinic - conducted by UNLV coaches and players - following the team's scrimmage (which is scheduled to end at approximately 6:30 p.m.). The clinic will be open to kids ages 6-12 and will last approximately 45 minutes.
"Being on campus for last year's event made for a great atmosphere so we are excited about being back at Rebel Park, this time on a Friday night," said Hauck. "It's a great chance for our fans to come out and learn more about Rebel football and get to know the players better."
The entrance to Rebel Park is located between the Earl E. Wilson Baseball Stadium and Lied Athletic Complex, which are near the intersection of Paradise and Harmon. Free parking is available at the baseball stadium, the Fertitta Tennis Complex and other surrounding areas on campus. Parking attendants will be on hand to help direct visitors and shuttles from the Thomas & Mack Center parking lot will be available, if necessary.
UNLV baseball will also be playing host to Air Force on Friday at 6:05 p.m. A special 2-for-1 offer on tickets will be available to the baseball game (and children ages 12-and-under are always free) making it easy for fans to catch the Spring Showcase before taking in a Rebel baseball game.
